The art and science of Silhouette in photography.

Never say the "light was low for a photograph to be taken". See what you can shoot on your camera with the given conditions. Thats the kind of attitude that I have towards photography. But to be frank I am not that positive in all aspects of my life.
A silhouette is normally a dark foreground projected agianst a bright backgound which would normally result in the outline of the foreground against the background.

How this works. Its very simple. If the exposure levels vary more than 2 stops between the backgroun and foreground this generall results in a silouette. Simple terms meter the camera for the bright backgound recompose the picture and shoot. The result will be a beautiful silhouette.
This is the silhouette of my friend John Immanuel.
