Key Facts For Proper Silhouette Photography

Among many landscape photography, Silhouettes are a wonderful way to convey emotion and mood to the viewers of your photos and often cherish in your album because of the combination of their simplicity but also the story that they convey. I love them because they don’t give the viewer of a clear picture of everything but leave part of the image up to their imagination to speculate about.

1.    Always Go for Manual Mode
Try to keep ISO as low as possible. Generally people attempt to increase ISO during dusk. Yes you can slowly raise your ISO but too much noise can occur for high ISO in such take. And it will definitely be there since your object will be black mostly. Although it depends upon which camera you are using.
Set your aperture (f-stop) for 9.0 or more for gaining depth of field so that all of details are in focus. One of the basic important factor is shutter speed, that must be increased. You can start at 1/130 if the object is still and move up to 1/250 for moving objects (birds).

2.    Best Time for Silhouette is Dawn & Dusk
You will need the background to be brighter than your subject to capture a clear silhouette. The best way to do this is to shoot at the beginning or the end of the day. The finest time to shoot a silhouette is when the sun is low in the sky - either when it is rising or setting. Sunsets are a favorite among photographers who regularly create spectacular silhouettes, but you can also shoot a decent silhouette against a blue sky.

3.    Search Open Space for Proper Take
For Silhouette photography always try to search open spaces. As the concept is to depict your inner views through your take, where location matters a lot. I would like to prefer a grassy field, a beach along ocean or a river bank. Also you must keep in mind that the area must not populated with tress, bushes, buildings or any distracting subjects. That might take viewer’s attention away from your object.  

4.    Use The Beauty of Bracketing
Bracketing is really helpful, particularly when taking a silhouette shot, because it gives you three options to choose from. What is bracketing? Bracketing is when your camera takes a series of photos (generally three): the shot you have metered for, one shot that’s one stop over what you have metered for and one shot that’s one stop under what you have metered for. Chances are good that one of the three shots will produce a nearly total silhouette (meaning the subject is almost black).

5.    Never Use Flash
Never use external flash for silhouette photography. If you usually shoot in automatic mode, it is likely that your camera will automatically fire the flash. To avoid such incident, switch to P mode (program mode), A mode (aperture priority), S mode (shutter priority), or M mode (manual).
