Learn How to Shoot Silhouettes

Monday, January 25th, 2010

The first thing you need to to look for when shooting silhouettes – dark subjects, often in profile with no detail – is a scene in which the background is much brighter than the main subject. Then, of course you will need to find your subject.

Silhouettes of Palm Trees – Canon EOS 5D @ 1/8 sec, f/16

What’s essential is to choose the right subject. The more interesting shape your subject has, the more interesting your photo will be. Don’t wait until there’s a vivid sunset/sunrise before looking round for something to use as a silhouette. However, as you travel around, keep your eyes peeled for suitable subjects. With a little imagination you can also create your own silhouettes by placing something suitable in front of the scene.
