“Shadows and silhouettes” photo contest
This photographic contest challenges you to look and find the appropriate interesting objects for shooting and to take part with your personal images on the topic.
The shadows are all around us
There is something mysterious, making silhouettes and shadows so interesting. They can be in many different forms and are all around us.
The silhouettes are a great way to convey drama, mystery, emotion and mood of the audience and your images. Often they stand in one album because of the combination of their simplicity, but also the storyline that they bring. People like them because they give a clear picture of everything and leave part of the image to the imagination of the viewer.
The basic strategy you will need to use when taking photographs with silhouettes, is to position the object (the figure you want to be darkened) in front of a light source and adjust the exposure of the camera based on the brightest part of your picture (background) and not the subject of your image. So the subject will be underexposed (and very dark, if not black). Select an object with a strong and recognizable form that is interesting enough in its two-dimensional shape to hold the interest of those enjoying your image.
Shadows can add a lot to a photograph. They can emphasize emotions, to create surreal images and can be used in a variety of ways. Despite their use in color photographs, there is a tendency to be used mostly in silhouettes. They are most impactful when used in black and white photographs.
When working use a tripod if possible. Experimenting is perhaps one of the most important things. The manual mode gives you full control over the images. Be creative and make the coolest photographs. Participate and we promise you great rewards.
