Landscape Photography Photo Hint - Get Better Sundown Photography With Silhouettes!

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

Previously, we found that the pretty colors aren't enough. A winning sunset photo needs a star. Today let us add silhouettes to get better sundown photography.

In previous posts, we have mentioned that 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 sunset landscape pictures) the most effective star is an individual! Folks like looking at people! You will receive 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 add a person. In shape showing no element and normally showing complete detail.

Now's sundown photography photo suggestion will discuss including a silhouetted person. Or really anything - the principles are valid regardless of what your 'star' is. Done well, the result can be among the most exquisite pictures you could create.

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

In sundown photography, getting the shape that is black that is pure with no detail is actually quite 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 spaces that are dark - now we only let them go dim.

The initial step is to meter from the sky, not the person, so to add a silhouette. In the event that you meter from the individual, your camera will make a mighty effort at setting an exposure to reveal detail.

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

Easy.

The 2nd concern we have in adding a shape is really harder to get right.

Don't forget, you are adding a contour 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 have the ability to immediately tell what it really is. In case your subject is standing in front of another object, like a palm tree, rock or whatever - the (black with no detail) contours will blend together and distort the image.

This thought is difficult to put in words but simple to comprehend. I'm sure you have observed pictures where the shapes neither appears right and combined together. An individual using 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 intersecting with your silhouetted shape.

This comprises the ground... Frequently I see silhouettes where the top half of the model is in silhouette but the bottom half is lost in the ground. You might have to shoot up at your star from a vantage point that is somewhat lower to prevent this type of blending.

The third factor to consider is the contour itself! Not only do you need to be on the lookout for your shape not reading accurately because it mixes with others, it can blend 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 a productive silhouette, the pose is critical! Even more so than in a usual photo of the man. The fact that she's a pretty girl doesn't matter in this case. In a silhouette, no one is definitely going to be able to tell what she looks like.

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

Hats and look strange in silhouette and other garments could drastically alter the form. In silhouette, 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 when you're making silhouettes and poses for their shapes. Add them to your laptop so that you may always have them at hand when the situation appears.

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