The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – Silhouette


The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – Silhouette

Photography is all about experimenting with light, and then positioning yourself (or your subject) in the right spot to achieve a certain effect. One such effect is a silhouette, in which an outline of someone or something appears dark against a lighter background. Silhouettes can be very dramatic and resemble black shapes without any details, but the effect varies from picture to picture.

  1. Thank you for your encouraging comment 🙂
    It was more than likely sunset – I recall taking that in winter and it is too cold (for me!) to be up and about taking pictures so early in the morning 😉
