Silhouette Photography.

A silhouette is an outline of an object or person :

Come, hold my hand!

Lit from the back all details of the subject are in shadow.

To get good silhouette pictures :

  • Shoot facing the light with your subject in the middle. 
  • Choose Spot or Partial Metering Mode at the bottom of Quick Control Screen. 
  • Turn off the flash as it will illuminate the dark areas which we want to remain black. 
  • Turn Mode Dial to Av or Aperture Priority Mode and choose a large F number.
  • Press shutter button halfway and turn the Quick Control Dial till the exposure meter mark is in the negative area.This will darken the silhouette more.

Lovers sunset!
