Landscape Photography Photo Trick - Get Better Sunset Photography With Shapes!

The landscape photography photo suggestion of now will continue our discussion of the way to create stunning sunset photography.

Previously, we discovered the pretty colours are not enough. A winning sundown photo wants a star. Now let's add silhouettes to get better sundown photography.

In previous articles, we've mentioned the star could be an interesting palm tree, a seagull flying by... essentially anything! The magnificent colors are the backdrop to our star, not the focus of the photo.

But (as in our routine non sundown landscape photos) the most effective star is an individual! Folks like looking at folks! You're going to get the viewer more easily engaged in a photo - any photo - where there are individuals being revealed.

In a sunset photograph there is two ways to add a man. In shape showing no detail and generally revealing full detail.

Now's sunset 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 outcome can be among the most exquisite photos you may create.

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

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

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

The first step would be to meter from the sky, not the individual so to add a silhouette. Your camera will make a mighty attempt at setting an exposure to show detail, should you meter from the individual.

To put it differently, 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 spot in the photo.

Simple.

In adding a shape, the second concern we've got is actually more difficult to get right.

Remember, you are 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 manage to instantly tell what it 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 hard to put in words but simple to understand. I'm certain you've observed pictures where the shapes neither appears appropriate and mixed together. A person 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 contour.

This contains the ground... Often I see silhouettes where the top half of the version 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 marginally lower to avoid this form of blending.

The third factor to take into account is the shape itself! Not only do you need to be careful for your shape not reading right 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 vital, to get a productive shape! Even more so than in a normal photo of the individual. The reality that she is a pretty girl does not matter in this case. In a shape, no one is going in order 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 powerful if that was all you could see of the individual?

Other clothing and hats could drastically alter the form and appear bizarre in silhouette. It might look like a tiara in the wedding photos, but in shape, it looks like devil's horns sticking from her head.

Study various find several you can use if you are creating silhouettes and poses for their contours. When the specific situation appears, so that you will always have them at hand, add them to your notebook.

Shapes are not just powerful in sundown 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 together with the light from outdoor silhouetting them.
