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

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

Previously, we found the pretty colours are not enough. A winning sunset photo wants a star. Today let's add shapes to get better sundown photography.

In previous articles, we have mentioned that the star may be an intriguing palm tree, a seagull flying by... essentially anything! The stunning colours 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 folks! You're going to get the viewer more easily participated in a photo - any photo - where there are people being shown.

In a sunset photograph there's two methods to add a person. In silhouette showing no detail and normally revealing full detail.

Now's sunset photography photo hint will discuss adding a silhouetted man. Or really anything - the principles are valid no matter what your 'star' is. Done well, the outcome can be among the most exquisite pictures you may ever create.

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

In sundown photography, getting the pure contour that is black with no detail is really pretty easy. In our previous conversations, we have learned that if we take our meter readings from the sky - everything else in our sundown photo will go black. Ta-daaa!

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

The first step is to meter from the sky, not the individual so to add a shape. In case you meter from the person, your camera is likely to make a mighty attempt at setting an exposure to show 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 place in the photo.

Easy.

The 2nd concern we've got in adding a silhouette is really 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 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, stone or whatever - the (black with no detail) contours will mix together and distort the image.

This thought is difficult to put in words but simple to understand. I'm sure you've seen pictures where the silhouettes neither looks correct and mixed together. An individual with 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 is nothing currently 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 silhouette. You might have to shoot up at your star from a somewhat lower vantage point to avoid this sort of blending.

The third factor to think about is the shape itself! Not only do you have to be careful for your silhouette not reading correctly because it mixes 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 a productive silhouette, the pose is essential! Even more so than in a usual photo of this individual. The reality that she is a girl that is pretty doesn't matter in this case. In a shape, 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 pose 'read' and be successful if that was all you could see of the person?

The shape could radically change and appear odd in silhouette. In shape, it resembles demon's horns sticking out of her head, although it might look as a tiara in the wedding photographs.

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

Silhouettes are not only powerful in sunset photography, but at weddings. Model 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 all the light.
