The Wilde Olive Blog: WW: A Silhouette Shoot & EMC Headstart!


WW: A Silhouette Shoot & EMC Headstart!

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

a few more photos from our mother's day shoot.

I did the set up and gave Wesley the took a few before he got it right! =) 

Shooting a silhouette? 
  • You'll need to make sure there is light behind your subject (a low sun in the sky is great)
  • I set my aperture to 5.6 and ISO to 400 for this photo (if it was actually sunny Aperture would have been a little larger probably). 
  • I had Wesley get low to the ground to avoid the tree line - a more level photo would have been a little better angle, but I like this too!
  • For more info on shooting silhouettes check out this or this and for how to make a .gif like mine check out this tutorial.

Same settings 5.6 and ISO 400 with background. 

Now maybe this is what you came for? =) Join us this week!
