Tonight's picture was a perfect ending to a perfect day. Have you tried a silhouette picture yet? I think our days are getting numbered. Today's weather was a little too perfect for being October 2. The sun is setting earlier and earlier. The days are shorter than I like, and as soon as that sun goes down the chill in the air hits fast. (even though temps were high today!) This week should be a perfect time to get those silhouette pictures...storms are rolling in meaning there will be some fantastic clouds. Unlike the picture above...there wasn't a single cloud in the sky. Clouds make those silhouette shots absolutely magnificent! Best time to take the picture is just before the sun sets. Find a locations that will put your subject on the same plane as the sun. For this shot I had the kids up on the hill. The sun was just going behind the mountains.
Don't be afraid to put your camera in manual mode.
These are the settings I used in manual mode...
I'm going to be trying again this week if the clouds are out and weather permits. :)
If you happen to try it as well...please share!
