Sound Shooters: Silhouette

I wrote about negative space as background in White Space/ Negative Space

But you can photograph subject(s) as negative space — just shoot your subject as a silhouette.

♦Silhouette

    Expose for background: The background has to be brighter than the subject.
    You may have to manually focus the lens since the subject is dark.

♦Multiple subjects and Partial Silhouettes

George Washington and Olympic Mountain Range


The best time for shooting silhouettes is around sunset or sunrise.
