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

The landscape photography photo hint of today will continue our discussion of how to create stunning sunset photography.

Previously, we discovered that the pretty colors aren't enough. A star is needed by a winning sundown photo. Today let us add shapes to get better sunset photography.

In previous posts, we have mentioned that the star could be an interesting 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 an individual! Folks like looking at people! You will receive the viewer more readily participated in a photo - any photo - where there are folks being shown.

In a sunset photograph there's two ways to put in a person. In shape showing no detail and generally revealing full detail.

Now's sunset photography photo hint will discuss including a silhouetted man. Or actually anything - the principles are valid no matter what your 'star' is. Done well, the result may be among the most exquisite photographs you may ever create.

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

In sundown photography, getting the shape that is black that is pure with no detail is really quite easy. In our previous discussions, we have learned that if we take our meter readings from the sky - everything else in our sunset photo will go black. Ta-daaa!

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

The initial step is to meter from the sky, not the person so to put in a shape. In the event you meter from the individual, your camera is likely to make a powerful effort at setting an exposure to show element.

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

Easy.

The second concern we have in adding a shape is actually more challenging 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's to 'read' right.

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

This notion is hard to place in words but simple to understand. I am sure you have seen photos where the shapes mixed together and neither seems right. 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 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 model is in shape. You may have to shoot up at your star from a vantage point that is somewhat lower to avert this sort of blending.

The 3rd factor to consider is the contour itself! Not only do you need to watch out for your shape not reading correctly because it combines with others, it can combine 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 crucial to get an effective shape! Even more so than in a normal photo of this person. The reality that she is a pretty girl does not matter in this situation. In a silhouette, no one is 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 successful if that was all you could see of the individual?

Other clothes and hats could radically change the form and look bizarre in silhouette. It may look as a tiara in the wedding pictures, but in shape, it looks like devil's horns sticking out of her head.

Study various poses for their contours and find several you can use when you're making silhouettes. Add them to your laptop when the situation appears, so that you will always have them at hand.

Shapes are not just effective 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 with the light from outside silhouetting them.

Practice today's landscape photography photo suggestion on how best to get better sunset photography by including shapes. There are many times when a shape is just the thing you have to separate you from the crowd, its worth learning how to do them well. A
