Tip of the Day – Semi Silhouettes

Tip of the Day – Semi Silhouettes

This daily tip series is brought to you by Barkarica – a pet photography retreat we ran in Costa Rica in February 2017. You can watch the behind-the-scenes video and read raving reviews here. Don’t forget to sign up to the mailing list to be the first to know when we announce our next out-of-this-world pet photography retreat!

The aim when you’re shooting silhouettes is to have the dog outlined completely against the sky. Sometimes it’s impossible to get down low enough and their feet or lower legs aren’t quite against the sky – in this case I like to create a “semi-silhouette” – where the subject is mostly black but a little detail is left in certain areas to help define edges.
