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

The landscape photography photo hint of now will continue our discussion of how to create beautiful sunset photography.

Previously, we found that the pretty colors are not enough. A star is needed by a winning sundown photo. Today let's add shapes to get better sunset photography.

In previous articles, we have mentioned that the star may be an intriguing 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 routine non sundown landscape photographs) the best star is an individual! People like looking at folks! You'll get the viewer more easily engaged in a photo - any photo - where there are folks being revealed.

In a sunset photograph there's two methods to add a man. In silhouette showing no aspect and normally showing full detail.

Now's sunset photography photo suggestion will discuss adding a silhouetted individual. Or really anything - the principles are valid no matter what your 'star' is. Done well, the end result can be one of the very exquisite photos you could create.

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

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

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

So to add a silhouette, the initial step would be to meter from the sky, not the man. Your camera is likely to make a mighty attempt at setting an exposure to show element, 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 put your 'star' in the correct place in the photo.

Easy.

The second concern we've got in adding a silhouette is actually more challenging 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' correctly.

By 'read' I mean that when someone looks at your photo, they must certanly have the ability to immediately tell what it really is. If your subject is standing in front of another object, like a palm tree, stone or whatever - the (black with no detail) shapes will mix together and distort the image.

This idea is difficult to place in words but easy to comprehend. I am certain you've seen pictures where the silhouettes combined together and neither appears correct. A person with 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 intersecting with your silhouetted shape.

This includes 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 might have to shoot up at your star from a vantage point that is slightly lower to avoid this type of blending.

The 3rd factor to contemplate is the contour itself! Not only do you need to be careful for your shape not reading right because it mixes with others, it can blend with itself also! 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 a productive shape! Even more so than in a usual photo of the individual. The very fact that she's a girl that is pretty does not matter in this situation. In a silhouette, no one is 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 effective if that was all you could see of the person?

Hats and appear weird in silhouette and other garments could radically change the shape. It may look like a tiara in the wedding pictures, but in shape, it resembles devil's horns sticking out of her head.

Study various find several you can use when you are making silhouettes and poses for their contours. Add them to your notebook so you may always have them at hand when the situation arises.

Silhouettes are not just effective in sunset 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 from outdoor silhouetting them with all the light.

Practice today's landscape photography photo tip by including silhouettes on how best to get better sundown photography. There are many times when a silhouette is just the thing you need to distinguish you from the bunch, its worth learning how to do them nicely. A
