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

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

Formerly, we found that the pretty colors are not enough. A winning sundown photo needs a star. Now let us add silhouettes to get better sundown photography.

In previous articles, we've mentioned that the star might be an intriguing palm tree, a seagull flying by... basically anything! The gorgeous colors are the backdrop to our star, not the focus of the photo.

But (as in our regular non sunset landscape pictures) the best star is an individual! People like looking at people! You're going to get the viewer more readily participated in a photo - any photo - where there are individuals being shown.

In a sunset photograph there is two methods to put in a man. In silhouette showing no element and normally showing full detail.

Now's sunset photography photo trick will discuss adding a silhouetted person. Or actually anything - the principles are valid no matter what your 'star' is. Done well, the outcome can be one of the very exquisite pictures you may ever create.

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

In sundown photography, getting the pure shape that is black free of detail is actually 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 is going to go black. Ta-daaa!

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

The initial step will be to meter from the sky, not the man so to add a shape. Your camera will make a mighty effort at setting an exposure to reveal detail in the event 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 put your 'star' in the correct spot in the photo.

Easy.

The second concern we have in adding a silhouette is actually more difficult to get right.

Remember, 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 must certanly have the capacity to immediately tell what it really is. If your subject is standing in front of some other object, like a palm tree, rock or whatever - the (black with no detail) shapes will mix together and distort the image.

This idea is hard to put in words but simple to understand. I am sure you've seen photographs where the shapes neither seems right and combined together. An individual with 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's nothing currently intersecting with your silhouetted shape.

This contains the ground... Frequently I see silhouettes where the top half of the model is in silhouette but the bottom half is lost in the ground. You might have to shoot up at your star from a vantage point that is slightly lower to avoid this kind of blending.

The third factor to think about is the contour itself! Not only do you need to be on the lookout for your shape not reading right because it combines with others, it can combine with itself too! Arms crossing in front of the body or hanging (with no gaps) along the sides, legs together and so on.

To get an effective silhouette, the pose is critical! Even more so than in a normal photo of this man. The very fact that she's a pretty girl doesn't matter in this event. In a silhouette, no one is definitely going to be able to tell what she looks like.

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

Hats and appear bizarre in silhouette and other garments could dramatically change the shape. In silhouette, it looks like demon's horns sticking from her head, although it may look like a tiara in the wedding photographs.

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

Shapes are not just powerful in sunset photography, but at weddings. Model the couple in shape in front of a stained glass window for example. Or at the doorway of the church with the light from outside silhouetting them.

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