Sunset Silhouettes

31 Jul

By now, everyone’s images for the July collaborative project are probably, mostly submitted.  Seems like a good time to finally put up a few that I have taken over the last two weeks. =)

The first image is one you may recognize if you follow the blog…and…well, why wouldn’t you be?? 😉  A few days ago, I posted an HDR of one of the lighthouses on Block Island.  Conveniently, the under-exposed bracket also makes a nice silhouette!

My second submission was really an excuse to take pictures of a purty sky. 🙂 I pulled over on the side of a mosquito-y road to take some photos of rows of corn beneath a great sunset.  Turns out, the corn photos were a bust…but the powerline silhouettes were ripe for the taking!  (Heh…that was almost a harvest joke. I’m so punny.)

This project was a lot of fun.  There are so many option for silhouette images…it was almost hard to narrow down what I wanted to shoot.

What did you guys think of the project?

    I enjoyed this challenge! I’ve not purpously gone out to shoot them before. I feel like I have another tool in my tool box now! Thanks!! 🙂

    I really enjoyed this challenge too. I have never bothered to use my camera so much as I do now and it always sits on manual now. I am not afraid to play with the ISO, shutter speed etc. I am slowly starting to see the posibility of photographs when looking at things I would have normally overlooked due to lighting, position etc. What’s next on the agenda?

      I’m sooo happy to hear that! We want everyone to get something out of the challenges and the educational posts…it makes me pretty excited to hear about your progress. 🙂

      Not gonna lie…the next creative collab is going to be super fun!
