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

Today's landscape photography photo trick will continue our discussion of how to create beautiful sunset photography.

Formerly, we found that the pretty colors aren't enough. A winning sunset photo wants a star. Today 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 magnificent colors are the backdrop to our star, not the focus of the photo.

But (as in our regular non sunset landscape photographs) the most effective star is an individual! People like looking at folks! You'll get the viewer more readily participated in a photo - any photo - where there are folks being shown.

In a sunset photograph there is two ways to put in an individual. In shape showing no aspect and generally revealing complete detail.

Now's sunset photography photo hint will discuss including a silhouetted man. Or actually anything - the principles are valid regardless of what your 'star' is. Done well, the end result can be among the most exquisite photos you may create.

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

In sunset photography, getting the pure shape that is black with no detail is really quite easy. In our previous discussions, 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!

Formerly, our concern was to bring detail into the dark spaces - now we just have them go dim.

The first step is to meter from the sky, not the individual so to add a silhouette. Your camera is likely to make a powerful attempt at setting an exposure to reveal detail in the event that you meter from the individual.

To put it differently, you have to take the camera off automatic - meter for the sky and then re-compose to set your 'star' in the right position in the photo.

Easy.

In including a shape, the 2nd concern we've got is really 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 has to 'read' right.

By 'read' I mean that when someone looks at your photo, they must have the capacity to instantly tell what it really is. In case your subject is standing in front of some other thing, like a palm tree, stone or whatever - the (black with no detail) shapes will blend together and distort the image.

This thought is difficult to place in words but easy to understand. I am sure you've seen photos where the silhouettes neither seems correct and combined together. A person 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's nothing currently intersecting with your silhouetted contour.

This includes the ground... The bottom half is lost in the ground although often I see shapes where the top half of the version is in silhouette. You might have to shoot up at your star from a vantage point that is marginally lower to avert this type of blending.

The third factor to consider 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 combine with itself also! Arms crossing in front of the body or hanging (with no openings) along the sides, legs together and so on.

To get an effective silhouette, the pose is essential! Even more so than in a usual photo of the man. The reality that she's a pretty girl does not matter in this situation. 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 using a black magic marker. Would that pose 'read' and be successful if that was all you could see of the person?

Hats and appear strange in silhouette and other clothes could radically change the form. It may look like a tiara in the wedding photographs, but in shape, it resembles demon's horns sticking out of her head.

Study various poses for their shapes and find several you may use when you're creating silhouettes. When the specific situation arises, so you may always have them at hand, add them to your notebook.

Silhouettes are not only successful in sundown photography, but at weddings. Model the couple in silhouette in front of a stained glass window for example. Or at the doorway of the church with all the light from outdoor silhouetting them.
