Landscape Photography Photo Tip - Get Better Sunset Photography With Silhouettes!
Now's landscape photography photo suggestion will continue our discussion of how to create beautiful sunset photography.
Previously, we found the pretty colours aren't enough. A star is needed by a winning sundown photo. Today let us add silhouettes to get better sundown photography.
In previous articles, we have mentioned that the star may be an interesting palm tree, a seagull flying by... basically 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 a man! People like looking at folks! You will get the viewer more easily engaged in a photo - any photo - where there are people being revealed.
In a sunset photograph there's two ways to put in a person. In silhouette showing no detail and normally revealing complete detail.
Today's sunset photography photo tip will discuss adding a silhouetted man. Or really anything - the principles are valid regardless of what your 'star' is. Done well, the outcome can be among the most exquisite pictures you may really ever create.

When adding a silhouette, the key element to keep in mind is that you're adding a shape, not a person (or bird or tree). Your shape will be pure black with no detail.
In sunset photography, getting the black shape that is pure free of detail is actually pretty easy. In our previous discussions, we've learned that if we take our meter readings from the sky - everything else in our sundown photo will go black. Ta-daaa!
Formerly, our concern was to bring detail into the dark spaces - now we just have them go dark.
The first step would be to meter from the sky, not the individual so to put in a shape. Your camera is likely to make a powerful attempt at setting an exposure to reveal element, in the event you meter from the individual.
In other words, you need to take the camera off automatic - meter for the sky and then re-compose to put your 'star' in the correct spot in the photo.
In adding a silhouette, the 2nd concern we've got is really more difficult to get right.
Remember, you are adding a shape and everything but the sky is black with no detail. Including the ground. When you add your shape, it's to 'read' right.
By 'read' I mean that when someone looks at your photo, they should be able to instantly tell what it is. In case your subject is standing in front of another thing, like a palm tree, stone or whatever - the (black with no detail) shapes will combine together and distort the image.

This thought is hard to put in words but easy to understand. I'm certain you have seen photos where the shapes mixed together and neither looks correct. Someone 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 is nothing currently intersecting with your silhouetted shape.
This comprises the ground... Often I see silhouettes where the top half of the model is in silhouette but the bottom half is lost in the ground. You might have to shoot up at your star from a marginally lower vantage point to prevent this kind of blending.
The third factor to contemplate is the shape itself! Not only do you have to watch out for your silhouette not reading accurately because it combines with others, it can blend with itself also! Arms crossing in front of the body or hanging (with no openings) along the sides, legs together and so on.
The pose is vital, to get an effective shape! Even more so than in a normal photo of this individual. The very fact that she's a girl that is pretty doesn't matter in this scenario. In a silhouette, no one is going to be able to tell what she looks like.
Consider photo examples out of magazines and color them using a black magic marker. Would that model 'read' and be successful if that was all you could see of the individual?
Hats and appear odd in silhouette and other clothing could radically change the shape. It might look as a tiara in the wedding pictures, but in shape, it resembles devil's horns sticking from her head.
Study various find several you can use if you are making silhouettes and poses for their contours. Add them to your laptop when the situation arises, so you may always have them at hand.
Silhouettes are not just successful in sundown photography, but at weddings. Pose the couple in silhouette in front of a stained glass window for example. Or in the doorway of the church from outside silhouetting them together with the light.
Exercise today's landscape photography photo suggestion by including shapes on what steps to take to to get better sundown photography. There are lots of times when a silhouette is just the thing you need to separate you from the group, its worth learning the way to do them well. A
