Silhouette Photography

I love silhouette photography.
I use this technique of photographing people, usually couple’s moment on the beach, objects or landscape elements against the light, to achieve an image in silhouette. The light might be natural, such as sunrise, sunset or an open doorway, or it might be contrived in a studio.

I choose to take my silhouette photos when the sun is right above the horizon, usually at sunset. I always use a narrow aperture (high f/stop) so the camera captures the whole scene in focus. It takes practice and experimentation, to capture a truly spectacular silhouette photo. Silhouette photographers must have great timing and perfect exposure settings.
Please take a look.
