Summer is finally here and the days linger long…a perfect time to capture the gorgeous golden light. And there is no better way to capture all of that summer magic than by shooting with backlight. Whether moody and shadowed or hazy and ethereal, backlight in photos has way of transforming the most ordinary of subjects into magical moments.

Here at FOL, our Focus on You is a way to encourage you to pursue and improve your art. Under this tab, we will continue our monthly inspirational themes. You are encouraged to post and tag your Focus photos to our Flickr group at as well as to continue using our Flickr pages to post any and all photos which you wish to share with our FOL family.

What will we do with all these photos? Glad you asked. Each Friday we will post a photo(s) to the blog which will Focus on You. The featured photos will be chosen from all the photos on our Flickr pages and we may choose several at one time. We've had some stunning work posted on our pages and we want to highlight these photos. Be sure to visit on Fridays to see if your photo has been selected!
