Default Help! Shadow assignment for newbie

I bought my first DSLR and our first assignment is challenging. Any ideas, thoughts or positive thoughts? I'll just get out there and do it, but any suggestions from your own experiences?


Here are the requirements.

1. Backlight sun behind subject off to side. Sun should not be visible. It should create a halo effect around subject. Needs a darker background. Meter shadow side. P.S. Don't block light.

2. Sillouette
Somewhere where no light is falling
Meter subject's shadow
take side reading of background
Focus on subject
Underexposure is ok
Silloutte must be sharp.

I'm still reading the manual.
Thanks for any help if you feel like responding. You will have my eternal love.
