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

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

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

In previous articles, we have mentioned the star may be an interesting palm tree, a seagull flying by... basically anything! The stunning colours are the backdrop to our star, not the focus of the photo.

But (as in our regular non sunset landscape photographs) the best star is a person! Folks like looking at folks! You will get the viewer more easily engaged in a photo - any photo - where there are individuals being revealed.

In a sunset photograph there is two methods to put in an individual. In silhouette showing no aspect and normally showing complete detail.

Today'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 among the most exquisite pictures you may ever create.

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

In sunset photography, getting the black shape that is pure free of detail is really pretty simple. In our previous discussions, we've learned that if we take our meter readings from the sky - everything else in our sundown photo is going to go black. Ta-daaa!

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

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

In other words, you have 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 second concern we have in adding a shape is actually harder to get right.

Remember, you are 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 have the capacity to instantly tell what it is. If your subject is standing in front of another thing, like a palm tree, rock or whatever - the (black with no detail) contours will combine together and distort the image.

This thought is hard to place in words but simple to understand. I am certain you've observed photographs where the shapes neither looks right and blended together. An individual who has 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 is nothing currently intersecting with your silhouetted contour.

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

The 3rd factor to contemplate is the shape itself! Not only do you have to be careful for your silhouette not reading accurately because it blends 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.

The pose is critical to get an effective shape! Even more so than in a normal photo of this individual. The reality that she's a girl that is pretty does not matter in this event. 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 person?

Hats and other clothing could radically alter the form and appear weird in silhouette. In silhouette, it resembles demon's horns sticking out of her head, although it might look as a tiara in the wedding photos.

Study various poses for their contours and find several you can use if you are making silhouettes. So that you may always have them at hand when the situation appears, add them to your notebook.

Silhouettes are not only successful in sunset photography, but at weddings. Pose the couple in silhouette in front of a stained glass window for example. Or at the doorway of the church from outdoor silhouetting them with all the light.

Exercise today's landscape photography photo suggestion by including silhouettes on what steps to take to to get better sunset photography. There are many times when a silhouette is just the thing you must separate you from the crowd, its worth learning the way to do them nicely. A
