Hotel Room Environmental Silhouette
Most of the time, photographers are looking for ways to add light to a scene, usually to make a room brighter. Before taking a silhouette image, however, we must imagine how a scene will look without light.
Tips for taking an environmental silhouette:
- Imagine +/- light
- Set ambient exposure first
- Adjust white balance for effect
- Add flash
- Adjust flash exposure/zoom/spill
- Adjust flash position to control shadow size
After making these adjustments, focus on posing and composition. Then, let the silhouettes begin!
