A couple of weeks ago the three of us were out back, laying on a blanket. It was a beautiful day, about 5pm, the sun was still out and there was a beautiful blue sky. My husband was playing airplane with M and I wanted to get a picture of her with the sky behind her. I could not get my settings right to get a good shot. She kept coming out dark no matter what I did.

Any photographers out there have suggestions on how to set up this shot so the baby isn't a partial shadow? I don't care if the sky is overexposed, it's the baby I want the light on.

ETA: I use a Canon T1i.
