Landscape Photography Photo Trick - Get Better Sundown Photography With Shapes!

Now's landscape photography photo suggestion will continue our discussion of the way to create stunning sunset photography.

Previously, we discovered the pretty colors are not enough. A star is needed by a winning sundown photo. Now let us add shapes to get better sundown photography.

In previous posts, we have mentioned that the star could be an intriguing palm tree, a seagull flying by... basically anything! The stunning colours are the backdrop to our star, not the focus of the photo.

But (as in our routine non sunset landscape pictures) the most effective star is an individual! Folks like looking at people! You will get the viewer more easily participated in a photo - any photo - where there are folks being revealed.

In a sunset photograph there's two ways to put in a man. In shape showing no detail and generally showing complete detail.

Today's sunset photography photo hint will discuss including a silhouetted man. Or actually anything - the principles are valid no matter what your 'star' is. Done well, the outcome may be among the most exquisite pictures you may create.

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

In sundown photography, getting the contour that is black that is pure free of 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!

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

So to add a silhouette, the first step is to meter from the sky, not the man. Your camera will make a mighty effort at setting an exposure to show detail, in the event you meter from the individual.

In other words, it's necessary for you to take the camera off automatic - meter for the sky and then re-compose to put your 'star' in the right spot in the photo.

Simple.

The 2nd concern we have in including a shape is actually more difficult to get right.

Don't forget, 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 have the capacity to immediately tell what it is. If your subject is standing in front of another item, like a palm tree, stone or whatever - the (black with no detail) contours will blend together and distort the image.

This notion is difficult to put in words but easy to comprehend. I am sure you've observed photos where the silhouettes blended together and neither appears right. An individual with a palm tree growing out of their head, a palm tree using 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 consists of 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 may have to shoot up at your star from a marginally lower vantage point to avoid this type of blending.

The 3rd factor to take into account is the shape itself! Not only do you need to look out for your silhouette not reading accurately because it mixes with others, it can blend with itself too! Arms crossing in front of the body or hanging (with no openings) along the sides, legs together and so on.

The pose is essential to get a productive silhouette! Even more so than in a usual photo of the man. The very fact that she's a girl that is pretty does not matter in this situation. 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 effective if that was all you could see of the person?

The form could dramatically alter and appear strange in silhouette. In silhouette, it resembles demon's horns sticking out of her head, although it may look as a tiara in the wedding photos.

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

Shapes are not only powerful in sunset photography, but at weddings. Pose the couple in shape 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 on how to get better sundown photography by including silhouettes. There are various times when a silhouette is just the thing you have to separate you from the gang, its worth learning the way to do them well. A
