Landscape Photography Photo Hint - Get Better Sunset Photography With Silhouettes!

Now's landscape photography photo hint will continue our discussion of the way to create stunning sunset photography.

Formerly, we found the pretty colours are not enough. A star is needed by a winning sundown photo. Today let's add silhouettes to get better sundown photography.

In previous articles, we've mentioned the star might 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 regular non sundown landscape photos) the most effective star is a man! People like looking at people! You'll get the viewer more easily engaged in a photo - any photo - where there are individuals being shown.

In a sunset photograph there's two ways to add an individual. In shape showing no aspect and generally showing complete detail.

Today's sundown photography photo hint will discuss including a silhouetted person. Or actually anything - the principles are valid no matter what your 'star' is. Done well, the end result may be among the most exquisite photos you could create.

When adding a silhouette, the crucial component to keep in mind is that you're adding a contour, not a man (or bird or tree). Your contour will likely be pure black with no detail.

In sunset photography, getting the contour that is black that is pure with no detail is actually fairly 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!

Previously, our concern was to bring detail into the dark spaces - now we only have them go dim.

So to put in a shape, the first step will be to meter from the sky, not the individual. Your camera will make a mighty effort at setting an exposure to show element, in the event you meter from the person.

In other words, it's necessary for you to take the camera off automatic - meter for the sky and then re-compose to set your 'star' in the right place in the photo.

Easy.

The second concern we have in adding a silhouette is actually more difficult 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' correctly.

By 'read' I mean that when someone looks at your photo, they must have the capacity to instantly tell what it is. In case 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 idea is difficult to place in words but simple to comprehend. I am sure you have observed pictures where the shapes mixed together and neither looks correct. A person using 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 comprises 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 may have to shoot up at your star from a vantage point that is somewhat lower to prevent this sort of blending.

The 3rd factor to think about is the contour itself! Not only do you need to be careful for your shape not reading accurately because it combines with others, it can combine 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 essential to get an effective shape! Even more so than in a normal photo of the man. The fact that she is a girl that is pretty doesn't matter in this scenario. In a silhouette, no one is definitely going in order to tell what she looks like.

Consider photo examples out of magazines and color them using a black magic marker. Would that pose 'read' and be successful if that was all you could see of the individual?

Hats and other clothing could radically change the form and look bizarre in silhouette. It may look as a tiara in the wedding photos, but in silhouette, it looks like devil's horns sticking out of her head.

Study various find several you can use when you're creating silhouettes and poses for their shapes. Add them to your notebook when the situation appears, so you'll always have them at hand.

Silhouettes are not just effective in sundown photography, but at weddings. Model the couple in silhouette in front of a stained glass window for example. Or in the door of the church with all the light from outdoor silhouetting them.
