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

The landscape photography photo suggestion of today will continue our discussion of how to create beautiful sunset photography.

Previously, we found that the pretty colours aren't enough. A star is needed by a winning sundown photo. Today let's add shapes to get better sunset photography.

In previous articles, we've mentioned the star might 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 routine non sundown landscape photographs) the best star is an individual! People like looking at people! You'll get the viewer more readily participated in a photo - any photo - where there are people being revealed.

In a sunset photograph there is two ways to put in a person. In shape showing no element and normally revealing complete detail.

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

When adding a silhouette, the crucial element to keep in mind is that you are 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 with no detail is really pretty simple. In our previous discussions, we've learned that if we take our meter readings from the sky - everything else in our sunset photo is going to go black. Ta-daaa!

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

The initial step will be to meter from the sky, not the individual so to put in a silhouette. In the event you meter from the person, your camera will make a powerful effort at setting an exposure to reveal element.

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 position in the photo.

Simple.

The 2nd concern we've got in adding a shape is actually more challenging 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 should have the ability to instantly tell what it is. In case your subject is standing in front of some other item, like a palm tree, rock or whatever - the (black with no detail) contours will combine together and distort the image.

This thought is hard to put in words but simple to understand. I'm sure you have seen photos where the silhouettes mixed together and neither appears correct. A person using 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's nothing intersecting with your silhouetted contour.

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

The third factor to think about is the contour itself! Not only do you have to look out for your silhouette not reading correctly because it blends 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 essential to get an effective shape! Even more so than in a usual photo of the man. The very fact that she's a girl that is pretty doesn't matter in this event. In a silhouette, no one is 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 powerful if that was all you could see of the individual?

The form could radically change and look odd in silhouette. In shape, it looks like devil's horns sticking out of her head, although it might look like a tiara in the wedding photos.

Study various poses for their contours and find several you can use when you're making silhouettes. When the specific situation arises, so that you'll always have them at hand, add them to your notebook.

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

Practice today's landscape photography photo hint by including shapes on how to get better sundown photography. There are lots of times when a silhouette is just the thing you have to distinguish you from the gang, its worth learning how to do them nicely. A
