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

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

Formerly, we discovered the pretty colors aren't enough. A star is needed by a winning sunset photo. Now let us add shapes to get better sunset photography.

In previous posts, we have mentioned that the star could be an intriguing palm tree, a seagull flying by... essentially anything! The gorgeous 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 folks! You're going to get the viewer more readily engaged in a photo - any photo - where there are people being shown.

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

Today's sundown photography photo suggestion will discuss including a silhouetted individual. Or really anything - the principles are valid no matter what your 'star' is. Done well, the result can be among the very exquisite pictures 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 probably be pure black with no detail.

In sunset photography, getting the pure shape that is black with no detail is actually pretty easy. 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!

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

The initial step will be to meter from the sky, not the man so to add a silhouette. Your camera will make a powerful attempt at setting an exposure to show element if you meter from the individual.

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

Simple.

In including a shape, the 2nd concern we've got is in fact more challenging to get right.

Remember, you're 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 manage to instantly tell what it is. If your subject is standing in front of another thing, like a palm tree, rock or whatever - the (black with no detail) contours will mix together and distort the image.

This idea is hard to put in words but easy to understand. I am certain you have seen photos where the silhouettes neither looks right and mixed together. Someone who has 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 intersecting with your silhouetted shape.

This includes the ground... Often I see silhouettes where the top half of the model is in shape but the bottom half is lost in the ground. You might have to shoot up at your star from a vantage point that is marginally lower to prevent this kind of blending.

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

To get an effective shape, the pose is critical! Even more so than in a usual photo of this person. The fact that she is a pretty girl doesn't matter in this case. In a shape, no one is definitely going in order to tell what she looks like.

Take 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 individual?

Hats and appear odd in silhouette and other clothes could radically alter the form. In silhouette, it resembles devil's horns sticking out of her head, although it may look like a tiara in the wedding photographs.

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

Silhouettes are not only effective in sunset photography, but at weddings. Model the couple in silhouette in front of a stained glass window for example. Or at the door of the church from outside silhouetting them with all the light.

Training today's landscape photography photo hint on what steps to take to to get better sunset photography by including silhouettes. There are numerous times when a shape is just the thing you have to distinguish you from the group, its worth learning the best way to do them well. A
