My Silhouettes (15 photos)
by Oscar Lopez Gold Star Critiquer/Gold Star Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C:  W: 59 N: 485] (4959)

Silhouetting is an easy technique to make a photograph stand out. Any photograph with the foreground in shadow and the background lighter is really a silhouette. Usually photographers work very hard to make sure their subjects are well lit, but with this technique, the roles are reversed, the main part of the subject is cast into darkness while the rest of the frame is brightly illuminated.
