We’ve explored some different types of lighting. This week, we are looking at silhouettes. This type of shot can be tricky, but also very rewarding. Backlighting is important. Taking care of what is behind your subject or subjects is vitally important. This couple really wanted a silhouette, and we found this amazing covered walkway that opened up to beautiful tulip gardens. You also want to play around with just how shadowed the subjects are. The slight lighting in this setting worked very well for what they wanted.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF SILHOUETTES.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
