Silhouette photography: tips for shooting into the sun
Photo ideas for shooting into the sun
Keep It Simple for Silhouettes! No need to have the Taj Mahal or ET on a bike. Even a lone tree makes a great subject.
02 Turn sideways
Victorians loved silhouette portraits, and it is a great way of photographing friends and family. Just shoot their profile!
03 Sun spot
Avoid staring into the sun, but do try include it in the frame. Reduce its brightness by partly hiding it behind the subject.
04 Fill flash
Try a burst of flash to light up the foreground, while keeping the silhouette in the distance.
05 Rim lighting
If the sun is low enough, and with the right subject, backlighting can make the edge of your silhouette glow, as with these sheep.
