Contre-jour, French for ‘against daylight‘,
Refers to photographs taken when the camera is pointing directly toward a source of light.
An alternative term is backlighting.
Contre-jour produces backlighting of the subject.
This effect usually hides details, causes a stronger contrast between light and dark, creates silhouettes and emphasizes lines and shapes.
The sun, or other light source, is often seen as either a bright spot or as a strong glare behind the subject.
Fill light may be used to illuminate the side of the subject facing toward the camera.
