Shooting silhouettes is one of my interests. My vacation home is situated on the east coast of Spain, a perfect location for combining sunrise and silhouette shots. I captured this picture a long time ago, but I often come back to it.
That morning another photographer had the same purpose for his morning activity: Photographing. At that time I had my first DSLR; Nikon D5100. A great companion for many years. This image is shot handheld with ISO 400, 1/100 sec and F5,6.
3 tips when shooting silhouettes:
- Concentrate on the shape of your subject – look for details.
- Avoid wind blurring trees, leafs, flags etc.
- Seek for open space
- Expose for the back light.
