Sorry if this has been posted somewhere already - had no idea how to word it to search for a topic on it.
I have just purchased my first DSLR ( 50d) - so very excited to say the least, been reading heaps and trying to learn how it all works - but one thing i can't find anything on which i would love to know how do it? Or if its even done with the camera or if it is done using photoshop???
So basically what i'm wanting to know (sorry if i dont explain this clearly as i'm not really sure how to use the words to say what i'm asking! lol
When you see a photo and it looks like the "subject" is sitting under a spotlight, ie there's a person and there is an outer "halo" looking shadow around them - or say a lighthouse etc. Is this done by setting your camera a certain way, or is this something only done in photoshop?
Thanks advance for your reply - and again sorry if this has already been asked.
