Silhouette

Capture a silhouette.

Photography is all about experimenting with light, and then positioning yourself (or your subject) in the right spot to achieve a certain effect. One such effect is a silhouette, in which an outline of someone or something appears dark against a lighter background. Silhouettes can be very dramatic and resemble black shapes without any details, but the effect varies from picture to picture.

Here are some visual treats from Egypt.

      Interestingly, I did not plan this. I spotted the silhouette with the setting sun for the last three pictures and the very first one was shot at noon when the sun was behind the Pompey’s pillar. As a novice with silhouettes, needless to say I was pleased with the results. 🙂
