30 Day Photography Challenge: Day 15 | Silhouette
I am not going to lie: I wasn't feeling the creative flow today.
I have been on a roll so far this month, biting at the bit each day to share my challenge captures. Today... was another story. It is rare that I don't want to pick up my camera. So rare that the few times it does happen, I feel like I better go admit myself for a mental evaluation. I must be crazy.
Sadly, today was one of those days.
Silhouettes are something I am still learning how to capture. While it is easy to get them in front of a setting sun, it seems that all other places become much more of a challenge. I love silhouette shots. Adore them. But I still am feeling weak when it comes to capturing the image myself.
I let my youngest climb up to sit on the window sill. Something we never let the kiddos do. Oh, he thought it was the most exciting thing ever. I quickly snapped my shots, enjoyed seeing him giggle, then called it done.
Even my chosen picture for today isn't a full silhouette. Still, I was at least happy with it. Mostly. And the fact that it is a shot of my adorable little boy makes it worth the grumbling I did nonstop in Lightroom.
If any of you out there have any silhouette tips and tricks, dump them on me! I am all... eyes.
Here are two more photos from today, just because I love that little man.
