Tips and tricks for handling light and shadows
Street Photography Week
Many street photographers use the technique of photographing people against the light to get silhouette images. I love taking silhouette photos because they are featureless and provide enough food for thought. Silhouettes are not about specific people but about human beings in general. Their solid black color brings weight, drama and emotions. Silhouettes make images look more artsy and painting-like, leaving viewers to use their imagination to complete underexposed details. It is very easy to take silhouette photos if you know couple tricks. I want to share some with you.
The general rule is to find a light background, it can be sunset, doorway, open sky or sunny wall with shadowy area in front of it (see the image below). Your object will be black-lit, photographed against light.

Use manual exposure mode on your camera. Set aperture on F/8-11 to get in focus both subject and background and meter the brightest part of your p

Hero-100 Featured By Owner May 16, 2014  Student General Artist
Hello, I'm sorry about not uploading your request as of yet but I have been really busy with end-of-the-year school tests and not to mention my parents have just finished remodeling out home. As my parents have been remodeling all our stuff is in storage and I have been staying with my grandmother. Her internet is made for only one user/computer to go off of, any more and it'll be like a turtle in an official Nascar race. So, even I didn't expect it to be so slow that it would not even load the art on DA (I'm using my mothers computer at the moment, as it is the only computer hooked up in our newly remodeled home). I have also lost your finished request due to all the other boxes filled with art. I'm not sure if it got thrown away by accident with all my old school reports (I'm moving up a  grade so why would I need to keep them?) or not but I would like to apologize for not only the time you have waited patiently only for it to be wasted but for losing the finished request as well. If you like, I can try the request again or I can give you sketch made in deviantART muro for the time being until I find time to start sketching (I'm helping move everything back into the house from storage). I also have the option to give a digital sketch (Although I can ALMOST guarantee that it will be poorly done because I have never actually digitally sketched before other than little doodles and testing all the neat tools the program offers). You can also cancel your request for I would understand that you have waited long enough and you can always go another, better, artist for a request of the same thing and they would have it done and uploaded in a matter of hours..

I am truly and honestly sorry for the inconvenience and my disability to upload your request.

Thank you,
Hero-100 / :iconhero-100:
