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

The landscape photography photo trick of today will continue our discussion of the way to create beautiful sunset photography.

Formerly, we discovered that the pretty colors are not enough. A winning sundown photo needs a star. Now let us add silhouettes to get better sundown photography.

In previous posts, we've mentioned the star could be an interesting palm tree, a seagull flying by... basically anything! The gorgeous colours are the backdrop to our star, not the focus of the photo.

But (as in our regular non sundown landscape photos) the most effective star is a man! Folks like looking at folks! 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 ways to put in a man. In silhouette showing no element and generally showing full detail.

Now's sunset photography photo trick will discuss including a silhouetted individual. Or actually anything - the principles are valid regardless of what your 'star' is. Done well, the result can be one of the most exquisite photographs you could really ever create.

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

In sunset photography, getting the contour that is black that is pure free of detail is actually pretty simple. In our previous discussions, 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 only have them go dark.

The initial step would be to meter from the sky, not the person so to put in a shape. If you meter from the person, your camera is likely to make a mighty attempt at setting an exposure to show element.

To put it differently, you have to take the camera off automatic - meter for the sky and then re-compose to put your 'star' in the right spot in the photo.

Simple.

The second concern we have in including a silhouette is really harder 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' right.

By 'read' I mean that when someone looks at your photo, they must certanly have the capacity to instantly tell what it really is. If your subject is standing in front of some other item, like a palm tree, rock or whatever - the (black with no detail) shapes will mix together and distort the image.

This notion is difficult to place in words but easy to comprehend. I'm sure you have observed pictures where the shapes neither seems appropriate and blended together. A person with 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 contour.

This contains the ground... Frequently I see silhouettes where the top half of the version is in shape but the bottom half is lost in the ground. You may have to shoot up at your star from a vantage point that is somewhat lower to avert this form of blending.

The third factor to consider is the contour itself! Not only do you have to be on the lookout for your silhouette not reading right because it combines with others, it can combine with itself too! Arms crossing in front of the body or hanging (with no gaps) along the sides, legs together and so on.

The pose is critical, to get an effective shape! Even more so than in a normal photo of the individual. The reality that she's a pretty girl does not matter in this scenario. In a shape, 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 effective if that was all you could see of the individual?

Other clothing and hats could radically change the form and appear strange in silhouette. It may look as a tiara in the wedding photographs, but in shape, it resembles demon's horns sticking from her head.

Study various find several you may use if you are creating silhouettes and poses for their shapes. Add them to your laptop so you may always have them at hand when the situation appears.

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

Practice today's landscape photography photo suggestion on what steps to take to to get better sundown photography by including shapes. There are many times when a shape is just the thing you have to distinguish you from the bunch, its worth learning the best way to do them nicely. A
