Landscape Photography Photo Hint - Get Better Sunset Photography With Silhouettes!

The landscape photography photo tip of today will continue our discussion of how to create stunning sunset photography.

Previously, we discovered that the pretty colours aren't enough. A winning sunset photo needs a star. Now let us add silhouettes to get better sunset photography.

In previous articles, we have mentioned the star may be an intriguing palm tree, a seagull flying by... essentially anything! The stunning 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! People like looking at people! You're going to get the viewer more readily participated in a photo - any photo - where there are folks being shown.

In a sunset photograph there is two methods to put in a person. In silhouette showing no detail and normally revealing complete detail.

Now's sunset photography photo hint will discuss including a silhouetted person. Or really anything - the principles are valid no matter what your 'star' is. Done well, the outcome can be one of the very exquisite photographs you may really ever create.

When adding a silhouette, the essential component to keep in mind is that you're adding a contour, not a man (or bird or tree). Your shape will be pure black with no detail.

In sundown photography, getting the pure shape that is black with no detail is actually quite simple. In our previous discussions, we have learned that if we take our meter readings from the sky - everything else in our sundown photo will go black. Ta-daaa!

Previously, our concern was to bring detail into the spaces that are dark - now we only let them go dark.

The initial step would be to meter from the sky, not the individual so to add a silhouette. In the event you meter from the person, your camera is likely to make a powerful attempt at setting an exposure to show detail.

To put it differently, 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.

Simple.

In adding a shape, the 2nd concern we have 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 has to 'read' correctly.

By 'read' I mean that when someone looks at your photo, they must certanly manage to immediately tell what it really is. If your subject is standing in front of another thing, like a palm tree, rock or whatever - the (black with no detail) shapes will combine together and distort the image.

This idea is difficult to put in words but easy to understand. I'm certain you have observed photos where the silhouettes neither looks right and combined together. 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 contour.

This contains the ground... Frequently I see silhouettes where the top half of the model is in silhouette but the bottom half is lost in the ground. You may have to shoot up at your star from a marginally lower vantage point to prevent this type of blending.

The 3rd factor to consider is the contour itself! Not only do you need to be on the lookout for your silhouette not reading accurately because it mixes with others, it can combine 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 fact that she's a girl that is pretty doesn't matter in this case. In a shape, 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 pose 'read' and be successful if that was all you could see of the person?

Other clothes and hats could dramatically alter the form and appear bizarre in silhouette. In silhouette, it resembles demon's horns sticking from her head, although it may look as a tiara in the wedding photos.

Study various poses for their shapes and find several you can use if you are making silhouettes. So that you will always have them at hand when the specific situation appears, add them to your laptop.

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 in the door of the church from outdoor silhouetting them with all the light.

Training today's landscape photography photo hint by including shapes on what steps to take to to get better sunset photography. There are various times when a silhouette is just the thing you must separate you from the bunch, its worth learning the best way to do them nicely. A
