LESSON: ON SILHOUETTES

One of the key points when it comes to silhouettes is the separation between compositional elements.

In other words, you want your silhouettes to be immediately recognized for what they are I.e. a person walking, a couple on a bench, people on the phone, all by a moored boat, etc.

Quick recognition leads to better appreciation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another reason why this photo works so well is that it was shot from a slightly lower angle than that of eye level (from a boat). Thusly, the blue sky being reflected off the surface of the water adds a speck of color in an area that otherwise would be without any details.
