See a Silhouette and Snap it
Silhouette shots are one of those styles that seem super easy, but are honestly difficult to get “just right.”
The Phoblographer wrote about three things to keep in mind when shooting silhouette shots, and we think they’re spot-on excellent advice!
- Highlights way up: This is best achieved in post-processing, but keep it in mind while shooting so you can adjust exposure and focal points.
- Ship Shapes: Silhouette photos rely on visually interesting shapes rather than color contrast or subject matter. Be on the lookout for unique, but recognizable, shapes.
- Composition: Keep a good balance of shadow and light, or create drama with slightly more of one than the other.
