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

The landscape photography photo hint 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 sunset photo needs a star. Today let's add shapes to get better sundown photography.

In previous posts, we've mentioned that 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 regular non sunset landscape photos) the most effective star is a person! People like looking at folks! You will get the viewer more readily engaged in a photo - any photo - where there are people being shown.

In a sunset photograph there is two ways to put in a person. In shape showing no aspect and normally showing full detail.

Today's sundown photography photo tip will discuss including a silhouetted individual. Or really 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're adding a shape, not a person (or bird or tree). Your contour will soon be pure black with no detail.

In sundown photography, getting the pure contour that is black with no detail is actually quite 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 dark areas - 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 powerful attempt at setting an exposure to reveal detail in the event that you meter from the person.

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 correct position in the photo.

Easy.

In including a shape, the 2nd concern we have is in fact harder 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's to 'read' correctly.

By 'read' I mean that when someone looks at your photo, they should be able to immediately tell what it is. In case your subject is standing in front of another item, like a palm tree, stone or whatever - the (black with no detail) contours will combine together and distort the image.

This notion is difficult to put in words but easy to understand. I am sure you have seen pictures where the shapes neither appears right 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 shape.

This contains the ground... Frequently I see shapes where the top half of the version is in shape but the bottom half is lost in the ground. You might have to shoot up at your star from a somewhat lower vantage point to avoid this sort of blending.

The third factor to take into account is the shape itself! Not only do you have to watch out 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 gaps) along the sides, legs together and so on.

The pose is crucial to get a productive shape! Even more so than in a normal photo of this man. The reality that she is a pretty girl does not matter in this scenario. In a shape, no one is definitely going to be able to tell what she looks like.

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

Other garments and hats could radically alter the form and look strange in silhouette. It might look as a tiara in the wedding photos, but in silhouette, it looks like demon's horns sticking from her head.

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

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

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