Street Photography - Silhouettes

Street Photography - SILHOUETTES

I love to take Silhouettes whenever I get right lights and subjects. It is always satisfying moment when we capture perfect silhouette.

This is what I follow, if I want to capture Silhouettes.

  • Exposure - Set the exposure for the highlights. It is very easy if we have a spot meter and set the meter for the highlights.
  • Aperture - I always shoot in Aperture Priority. This helps me to  set the aperture to a large number (small aperture) to get more depth of field.
  • Avoid Overlapping - I think to get a perfect silhouette, we need to take care of subject placement and try to avoid overlapping as much as possible.

These are some of the Silhouette which I have taken over the period.
