There are various composition tools that you can utilize when framing a photograph. Perspective, color, space, symmetry, leading lines, shape, juxtaposition, and rule of thirds, among others, are all different types of composition tools at your disposal.
The list of terms mentioned above might seem daunting to someone starting out in photography but when seen in a visual form by way of examples, it becomes much easier to understand. In this post, we're going to look at examples of how silhouettes can be used in photography to emphasize shape and create amazing shots.
Backlit subjects produce silhouettes and can often provide you with a storytelling element and add a sense of mystery to your photographs. Portraits, landscapes, street photographs, abstracts- silhouettes work great in all of these situations and many more. We hope that this photo collection inspires you to create such shots of your own!
If you'd like to get better at photographic composition and learn concepts that go beyond the basics, do take a look at Kent DuFault's guide on advanced composition, but for now, let's sit back and enjoy these photographs.
