SILHOUETTES - Chat thread Weekly competition 4-11 Sept
« on: September 03, 2016, 02:48:22 PM »
This week's theme is Silhouettes. We all have taken a silhouette shot by accident (I am sure) But taking one on purpose requires a bit more thought. There are loads of ways to interpret a silhouette, it does not have to be a black and white one or a complete black silhouette. Giving a bit of detail in the silhouette can be far more interesting. A silhouette can also be interpreted as a rim light around an object/person. Have fun and experiment.
Pictures to be taken preferably between now and Sunday 11 September 2016, 23:59, or enter one from your Personal / Camera Cranium Archives if you prefer.
Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23:59pm Monday 12 September 2016.
Poll will be up Tuesday 13 September 2016.

After the photo shoot at the Steam Museum at Swindon last week I was lucky to have plenty to choose from for the theme of this weeks competition as I have not had the opportunity to get out with my camera . I finally settled for Kiss Goodbye!!     :dance:

I managed to get my dear wife in front of the camera. I had to promise it was a silhouette because she is camera shy.
Shot in front of a white sheet, with a red gel over the flash between model and background.

An old re-worked one from me. Too much painting and decorating to do this week! I didn`t know this family but liked their natural layouit with flaf and upturned surf board after a hard days surf.

Another oldie from me after another busy week. Next week is looking pretty crammed too.



This was 5 years ago, my daughter standing on the coast overlooking the Med.

The image was re-edited with the latest version of Photo Director from Cyberlink, which I got for a very attractive price. It is a lot faster than Lightroom and does everything that I need it to (so far). It even has layer editing. I think that this in conjunction with On1 that I have had for some time will be more than good enough as an alternative. I am seriously thinking of changing my DAM from Lightroom and my image editor from Photoshop when Affinity is available for Windows.
