Landscape Photography Photo Hint - Get Better Sunset Photography With Shapes!
Now's landscape photography photo suggestion will continue our discussion of the way to create stunning sunset photography.
Formerly, we discovered that the pretty colors are not enough. A winning sundown photo wants a star. Today let's add shapes to get better sunset photography.
In previous articles, we've mentioned that the star might be an interesting palm tree, a seagull flying by... essentially anything! The magnificent colours are the backdrop to our star, not the focus of the photo.
But (as in our routine non sunset landscape photos) the most effective star is a man! Folks like looking at people! You will get the viewer more readily engaged in a photo - any photo - where there are individuals being shown.
In a sunset photograph there's two methods to add a person. In shape showing no detail and generally showing full detail.
Today's sunset photography photo hint will discuss adding a silhouetted individual. Or actually anything - the principles are valid regardless of what your 'star' is. Done well, the outcome may be one of the most exquisite photographs you could create.

When adding a silhouette, the crucial component to keep in mind is that you are adding a contour, not a man (or bird or tree). Your contour will likely be pure black with no detail.
In sunset photography, getting the shape that is black that is pure with no detail is really pretty simple. In our previous conversations, we have learned that if we take our meter readings from the sky - everything else in our sundown photo is going to go black. Ta-daaa!
Formerly, our concern was to bring detail into the spaces that are dark - now we just let them go dark.
The first step is to meter from the sky, not the individual, so to add a shape. Your camera will make a mighty effort at setting an exposure to show element in the event that you meter from the individual.
To put it differently, you have to take the camera off automatic - meter for the sky and then re-compose to put your 'star' in the right position in the photo.
The second concern we have in including a silhouette is really more challenging to get right.
Remember, you are adding a contour and everything but the sky is black with no detail. Including the ground. When you add your shape, it has to 'read' correctly.
By 'read' I mean that when someone looks at your photo, they must certanly have the capacity to immediately tell what it is. In case your subject is standing in front of some other object, like a palm tree, rock or whatever - the (black with no detail) shapes will blend together and distort the image.

This notion is hard to place in words but easy to comprehend. I am certain you've seen pictures where the shapes blended together and neither looks appropriate. A person with a palm tree growing out of their head, a palm tree with a seagull's wing sticking out of the trunk and so on...
Be sure that there's nothing intersecting with your silhouetted shape.
This comprises the ground... The bottom half is lost in the ground although often I see shapes where the top half of the model is in silhouette. You may have to shoot up at your star from a slightly lower vantage point to avoid this kind of blending.
The third factor to take into account is the contour itself! Not only do you need to watch out for your shape not reading right because it blends with others, it can blend with itself too! Arms crossing in front of the body or hanging (with no gaps) along the sides, legs together and so on.
To get a productive silhouette, the pose is essential! Even more so than in a normal photo of this person. The reality that she's a girl that is pretty doesn't matter in this case. In a shape, no one is definitely going to be able to tell what she looks like.
Take photo examples out of magazines and color them using a black magic marker. Would that pose 'read' and be successful if that was all you could see of the individual?
Other clothes and hats could drastically change the form and look strange in silhouette. It may look as a tiara in the wedding photos, but in shape, it resembles devil's horns sticking out of her head.
Study various find several you may use if you are making silhouettes and poses for their shapes. Add them to your notebook when the situation arises, so that you may always have them at hand.
Shapes are not just powerful in sunset photography, but at weddings. Model the couple in shape in front of a stained glass window for example. Or at the door of the church with all the light from outdoor silhouetting them.
Training today's landscape photography photo tip on how to get better sunset photography by including shapes. There are numerous times when a shape is just the thing you must separate you from the crowd, its worth learning the way to do them well. A
