I don’t know these children. (Although sometimes I almost feel like I do.) But if you are lucky enough to be related to them, let’s say, this still photograph brings them alive in the way nothing else can—not even a video. There is so much personality and detail about each of them. For those of you that don’t know how to shoot this photograph—that is, what’s the formula for a silhouette?—you want to pose your subject in front of a background that is much, much brighter than they are. The evening sky is perfect. And then, when you properly expose for that background – in this case the sky – they will become dark, almost black silhouettes. (This picture is much trickier to shoot at high noon.) Another beautiful picture from Liz.
