Landscape Photography Photo Suggestion - Get Better Sundown Photography With Shapes!
Now's landscape photography photo hint will continue our discussion of the way to create stunning sunset photography.
Formerly, we found that the pretty colours are not enough. A star is needed by a winning sunset photo. Today let us add silhouettes to get better sunset photography.
In previous posts, we have mentioned the star might be an intriguing palm tree, a seagull flying by... basically anything! The magnificent colours are the backdrop to our star, not the focus of the photo.
But (as in our routine non sundown landscape pictures) the most effective star is a man! Folks like looking at people! You will receive the viewer more readily engaged in a photo - any photo - where there are individuals being revealed.
In a sunset photograph there is two ways to put in an individual. In silhouette showing no aspect and generally showing complete detail.
Today's sunset photography photo suggestion will discuss adding a silhouetted person. Or really anything - the principles are valid no matter what your 'star' is. Done well, the end result can be among the very exquisite photographs you could ever 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 shape will soon be pure black with no detail.
In sundown photography, getting the shape that is black that is pure with no detail is actually 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 only let them go dim.
So to put in a shape, the initial step is to meter from the sky, not the person. Your camera will make a powerful effort at setting an exposure to show detail if you meter from the individual.
To put it differently, you need to take the camera off automatic - meter for the sky and then re-compose to set your 'star' in the correct position in the photo.
The 2nd concern we have in adding a silhouette is actually 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 has to 'read' correctly.
By 'read' I mean that when someone looks at your photo, they should manage to immediately tell what it really is. If your subject is standing in front of another 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 place in words but simple to comprehend. I am certain you have observed pictures where the shapes neither looks correct and mixed together. Someone 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 currently intersecting with your silhouetted contour.
This consists of the ground... The bottom half is lost in the ground although often I see silhouettes where the top half of the model is in shape. You might have to shoot up at your star from a somewhat lower vantage point to prevent this kind of blending.
The 3rd factor to think about is the shape itself! Not only do you have to be on the lookout for your silhouette not reading right because it blends 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 essential, to get an effective shape! Even more so than in a normal photo of this person. The very fact that she's a girl that is pretty does not matter in this scenario. In a shape, no one is 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 person?
Other clothes and hats could radically change the shape and appear strange in silhouette. It might look as a tiara in the wedding photographs, but in shape, it looks like demon's horns sticking out of her head.
Study various poses for their shapes and find several you may use if you are making silhouettes. Add them to your notebook when the specific situation arises, so you will always have them at hand.
Silhouettes are not just powerful in sundown photography, but at weddings. Model the couple in shape in front of a stained glass window for example. Or at the door of the church from outside silhouetting them together with the light.
Practice today's landscape photography photo hint on what steps to take to to get better sunset photography by including silhouettes. There are various times when a silhouette is just the thing you must separate you from the crowd, its worth learning how to do them well. A
