Landscape Photography Photo Suggestion - Get Better Sunset Photography With Shapes!
The landscape photography photo hint of today will continue our discussion of the way to create beautiful sunset photography.
Formerly, we found the pretty colours aren't enough. A winning sunset photo wants a star. Today let's add silhouettes to get better sunset photography.
In previous articles, we have mentioned the star could be an intriguing palm tree, a seagull flying by... essentially anything! The gorgeous colors are the backdrop to our star, not the focus of the photo.
But (as in our routine non sunset landscape pictures) the best star is an individual! People like looking at people! You will receive the viewer more readily engaged in a photo - any photo - where there are individuals being revealed.
In a sunset photograph there's two ways to put in a man. In shape showing no aspect and normally revealing full detail.
Today's sunset photography photo trick will discuss adding a silhouetted man. Or really anything - the principles are valid no matter what your 'star' is. Done well, the end result may be among the very exquisite photographs you could create.

When adding a silhouette, the key element to keep in mind is that you're adding a contour, not a person (or bird or tree). Your contour will likely be pure black with no detail.
In sunset photography, getting the pure black contour free of detail is actually quite easy. In our previous discussions, we have learned that if we take our meter readings from the sky - everything else in our sunset photo will go black. Ta-daaa!
Previously, our concern was to bring detail into the dark areas - now we only have them go dark.
The first step is to meter from the sky, not the man, so to add a shape. Your camera is likely to make a powerful attempt at setting an exposure to reveal detail, in the event that you meter from the person.
In other words, you must take the camera off automatic - meter for the sky and then re-compose to put your 'star' in the correct place in the photo.
The second concern we have in including a silhouette is in fact more difficult 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's to 'read' correctly.
By 'read' I mean that when someone looks at your photo, they must have the ability to immediately tell what it is. If your subject is standing in front of another item, like a palm tree, rock or whatever - the (black with no detail) shapes will combine together and distort the image.

This thought is difficult to place in words but easy to comprehend. I'm sure you have observed photographs where the shapes neither appears right and combined together. An individual who has 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 is nothing currently 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 shape. You might have to shoot up at your star from a vantage point that is slightly lower to avoid this type of blending.
The 3rd factor to contemplate is the shape itself! Not only do you have to watch out for your silhouette not reading right because it combines 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 an effective shape, the pose is essential! Even more so than in a usual photo of the individual. The reality that she's a girl that is pretty doesn't matter in this event. In a silhouette, no one is going in order to tell what she looks like.
Take photo examples out of magazines and color them with a black magic marker. Would that model 'read' and be successful if that was all you could see of the individual?
Other clothing and hats could drastically alter the shape and look bizarre in silhouette. In silhouette, it resembles devil's horns sticking from her head, although it may look as a tiara in the wedding photographs.
Study various poses for their shapes and find several you can use when you're creating silhouettes. Add them to your laptop so you may always have them at hand when the situation appears.
Shapes are not just successful in sunset photography, but at weddings. Pose the couple in silhouette in front of a stained glass window for example. Or at the door of the church from outdoor silhouetting them together with the light.
Training today's landscape photography photo suggestion by including silhouettes on how best to get better sunset photography. There are various times when a silhouette is just the thing you have to distinguish you from the group, its worth learning how to do them nicely. A
