Shoot on the dark side.

We are naturally drawn to light. Often when taking portraits we first shoot with the light side of the subject closest to the camera.
An approach that often yields good results is to shoot with the dark side of the subject closest to the camera. We see this technique in a recent portrait of the queen by Annie Leibovitz.
Experiment by letting the highlights overexpose. Expose for the shadows and the light will often “wrap around” the subject.
The question we now ask: Does Darth Vader shoot Nikon or Canon?
