Here are my attempts at capturing silhouettes on a bright and beautiful beach day, although the sun was not low enough in the horizon for them to be exactly what I was trying to achieve. I like how they turned out, regardless, with the reflective sand and cloudy sky.
We live in such a wooded and hilly area that any time I try to practice true silhouettes behind my kids (in the traditional sense, not just playing with light), I fail because the light is still too far above them rather than behind them, or the sun doesn’t set until after their bedtime in the summer (when we’re out later). Anyone have any suggestions as to how get my shot?
I didn’t mind that they weren’t perfect, anyway. It was a lot of fun practicing!
Next year the kids will be a little older and I plan to keep them up until sunset one night just to try some more (and who doesn’t love a sunset romp at the beach?).
Fun in the sun!
