I’m a strong believer that you can always photograph something interesting in the outdoors, no matter the light and conditions. There are big and wide compositions that feature a beautiful sunset when the clouds are exploding with color, and there are small detail shots when the location lacks subject matter. Knowing when to use each type of shot is a great way to create more impactful compositions to fit the scenario. Dynamic silhouettes are a great way to capture an outdoor photograph when the sky isn’t too interesting. In this video, I’ll take your through the steps of how to photograph dynamic silhouettes during a lackluster sunset in the Outer Banks, North Carolina. After learning this technique, you will be able to capture thoughtful and artistic photos of silhouetted subjects that complement light.
