Search results for "silhouette"


The sun sets or the sun shines ... usually best moments for photography in nature where mid tones show the most. No harsh shadows and no over strong highlights. Everything seems balanced and camera sensors of all sizes simulate such in there own best way(s).Directly lit objects may show really clear but what about back lit ones.Hair and fur shows really well pronounced especially if front of camera object had no reason to be that clear in terms of detail with certain texture(s)... continue reading

A photo close to my heart

My first successful attempt at Dreamstime assignments! Excited !! In fact the excitement is double as this photo is very special to me. That baby is my cute little daughter and the mother is my sweet wife!This visual came to my mind a few months ago when I was taking a casual photo of my little one walking on the terrace holding her mother's hand! I started working on making it real. On the same day, from the same terrace, I clicked the sunset.There is a marshland near my place and a lot of... continue reading

Train Station

A couple weekends ago, I went to pick up our son at the local train station.With camera in hand, I took a few shots and transferred them into illustrations.My favorite shot is this train conductor and passenger.They were talking to each other right in front of the train, so it was a great moment to capture.All in all, I think it was a successful day. continue reading

To make a silhouette

I like silhouette images very much. They look bright and well represent objects with clear contours and interesting shape.Silhouettes make the picture look more abstract. In case of shooting people, for ex. you can't identify who exactly is on the picture (and sometimes don't need a model release), but the meaning of the whole scene is absolutely clear.Same happens when you shoot nature, still life and architecture (if it's not a famous landmark) silhouettes. They don't show a particular... continue reading
