Landscape Photography Photo Hint - Get Better Sunset Photography With Shapes!
Today's landscape photography photo suggestion will continue our discussion of how to create beautiful sunset photography.
Formerly, we discovered the pretty colors aren't enough. A winning sunset photo wants a star. Now let's add shapes to get better sundown photography.
In previous posts, we have mentioned the star may be an intriguing palm tree, a seagull flying by... essentially anything! The stunning colors are the backdrop to our star, not the focus of the photo.
But (as in our regular non sundown landscape photos) the best 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 methods to add a person. In shape showing no element and generally revealing complete detail.
Now's sunset photography photo trick will discuss including a silhouetted person. Or actually anything - the principles are valid regardless of what your 'star' is. Done well, the result may be one of the most exquisite pictures you could really ever create.

When adding a silhouette, the crucial component to keep in mind is that you're adding a shape, not a man (or bird or tree). Your contour will be pure black with no detail.
In sunset photography, getting the pure black shape free of detail is really quite simple. 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 areas that are dark - now we only have them go dim.
So to put in a shape, the initial step will be to meter from the sky, not the person. Your camera will make a powerful attempt at setting an exposure to reveal detail in the event that 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 correct position in the photo.
In including a silhouette, the second concern we've got is actually more challenging to get right.
Don't forget, you're adding a shape 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 certanly be able to immediately tell what it 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 mix together and distort the image.

This thought is hard to place in words but easy to understand. I am certain you've seen pictures where the silhouettes combined together and neither seems appropriate. Someone 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 currently intersecting with your silhouetted shape.
This consists of the ground... The bottom half is lost in the ground although frequently 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 slightly lower to avert this kind of blending.
The 3rd factor to consider is the contour itself! Not only do you need to look out for your silhouette not reading accurately because it combines 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 crucial to get a productive silhouette! Even more so than in a normal photo of this individual. The very fact that she's a pretty girl doesn't matter in this case. 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 model 'read' and be successful if that was all you could see of the individual?
The form could radically alter and look weird in silhouette. In shape, it looks like demon's horns sticking from her head, although it might look like a tiara in the wedding photos.
Study various find several you may use if you are making silhouettes and poses for their shapes. So that you may always have them at hand when the specific situation appears, add them to your notebook.
Silhouettes are not just successful in sunset photography, but at weddings. Pose the couple in silhouette in front of a stained glass window for example. Or in the doorway of the church from outdoor silhouetting them with the light.
