Seattle Creative Couples Photographer | Silhouettes

One of my favorite things about being an on-location photographer, is that every now and then I get a chance to turn a scene into a silhouette. If you’re unfamiliar with the term “silhouette” in photography, it’s basically a dark shape of someone or something against a lighter background.

When it comes to editing a silhouette, I often turn it into a black and white photo and do my best to bring out the contrast in the background and sky. I find that this processsing makes for gorgeous wall art, and I just love surprising my clients with a creative silhouette from their session since most of the time it’s not something they’ve expected. ๐Ÿ™‚

Below are a few of my most recent silhouettes…

You are so creative Ally! I think it’s great that you explain your process of editing. It helps appriciate the photo even more. :] It is also very apparent that you put a lot of effort into capturing the image from different angles. Once again, bravo!
