Silhouettes
« on: May 07, 2014, 09:40:57 AM »
While having 40 stops of DR someday might be great, one of the things I love about photograph is exploiting it's limitations, and I enjoy creating silhouettes. I didn't see a thread for it, so I thought I'd start one, and here are a handful to get it started:

Thanks for the nice comments, Click, and the first one is my favorite, too, especially with the little dragonfly near the palm.  I don't know how it fell into focus at that instant, but I like it.

Great photos, mackguyver.

I'll post 3 of them, although there is nothing special on them. Just to make this thread alive. ;)

Thanks climber, and I really like that first shot - the flames and people around the subject work very well together to frame the shot.

Love At Last Light

I've always liked this one, perhaps because I take so few sunset pictures.

Silhouettes are an example of a type of picture where the theory is easy but the implementation is harder.  These were some pretty good silhouettes.  Mine don't always turn out so well. 
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light
