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

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

Formerly, we found the pretty colors are not enough. A winning sundown photo needs a star. Now let us add shapes to get better sunset photography.

In previous articles, we've mentioned that the star could be an interesting 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 regular non sunset landscape pictures) the best star is a person! People like looking at folks! You'll get the viewer more readily participated in a photo - any photo - where there are people being shown.

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

Today's sunset photography photo tip will discuss adding a silhouetted man. Or actually anything - the principles are valid no matter what your 'star' is. Done well, the end result may be among the very exquisite photos you could ever create.

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

In sundown photography, getting the pure black shape free of detail is really fairly easy. In our previous conversations, we've 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 spaces that are dark - now we just have them go dim.

So to put in a shape, the first step is to meter from the sky, not the individual. Your camera will make a mighty effort at setting an exposure to show element in case you meter from the person.

In other words, you must take the camera off automatic - meter for the sky and then re-compose to set your 'star' in the right place in the photo.

Easy.

In including a shape, the 2nd concern we have is really more challenging to get right.

Remember, you're 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' 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 some other item, like a palm tree, stone or whatever - the (black with no detail) contours will blend together and distort the image.

This thought is difficult to place in words but easy to understand. I am sure you have observed photos where the silhouettes neither appears right and combined together. An individual who has 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 intersecting with your silhouetted shape.

This contains the ground... The bottom half is lost in the ground although often I see silhouettes where the top half of the version is in shape. You may have to shoot up at your star from a slightly lower vantage point to avert this sort of blending.

The third factor to take into account is the contour itself! Not only do you have to watch out for your shape not reading right 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 silhouette! Even more so than in a usual photo of the man. The fact that she is a pretty girl does not matter in this event. In a silhouette, no one is definitely going in order to tell what she looks like.

Consider photo examples out of magazines and color them with a black magic marker. Would that pose 'read' and be effective if that was all you could see of the person?

The form could drastically change and appear strange in silhouette. It might look like a tiara in the wedding photos, but in shape, it resembles devil's horns sticking from her head.

Study various find several you may use if you are creating silhouettes and poses for their shapes. When the specific situation appears, so that you will always have them at hand, add them to your laptop.

Shapes are not just successful in sundown 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 from outdoor silhouetting them with all the light.

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