SWM December 2016 – Portrait Silhouettes

1 January 2017 | Shoot With Me

This Shoot With Me group (Liz Roulston, Nigel Leyland, Tony Jobling and Joe Tulie) decided to shoot some portrait silhouettes. We tried shooting with natural light against a window, outdoors against a cloudy sunrise and indoors against a flash lit screen.

Costumes and props helped and we found that directing the models and careful attention to the silhouette and it’s placement in the frame gave best results.

Post processing was needed to produce full black silhouettes and lighten the background. for highest contrast the flash setup worked best.
