I have the sun face my lens but I am still able see colors and details on my subject.
shoot quicker/slower f-stop.
meter off your subject, compensate down by a minimum of -3.0eV
can I do this in PP?
in PP, use the curves tool and push down the midtones towards the shadows range
"curves" is just a remapping tool allowing you to make non-linear mappings of what is captured from your camera's imager to shadows, midtones and highlights.
Will focusing on the background rather than the subject work?
yeah, open the photo in photoshop and use the brush to paint them stark black
personally I use a camera to take them
but seriously, just use a faster shutter speed
Just use a faster shutter speed so the background is exposed correctly. At sunset it's fairly easy to do it.
Take the pic, then lower your exposure until you can't see the details. If the background starts looking underexposed, then you need to touch it up with photoshop.
only use this as a backup, you should get it right in the camera first, especially with something this easy
gotta make sure their heads are turned so you can make out details of the face and not jut a round head against a colored sky
I did a final project on these on 4x5
I should see if I can dig them up
