I read an article today that made me think twice, that made me wonder if people know what goes into a successful silhouette. I'll say it loud and proud. It is MORE than exposure. Yes, you meter for the sky, yes, that brings the blacks black, but there is is so much more to it than that. I used to say, angle, separation, and exposure. But it is even more than that. You can nail the angle, shooting from down low, you can nail the exposure, and you can even get the separation, but if you aren't telling a story, or conveying an emotion, you're not getting it. There needs to be a story. There needs to be an emotion. If the silhouette doesn't make you feel, it falls flat. Just something to think about as you're composing and editing your silhouettes.
