  2. I was surprised a couple weeks ago, was back in some dense shade, people walking out on the fringe of the shade, bright sunlight past it, my photos of people and trees - silhowettes. now a real photographer may know how to do it on purpose - but they were okay.
    gonna also look up the definitions.... sometimes that inspires me to go a different direction.
    word verf.... ZONSA (outside the zone??)

  4. I'm not a professional, nor do I play one on tv, but just shoot into the sun or at dawn/dusk without a flash. I got a great silhouette shot of a lone weather beaten tree on the beach yesterday by shooting into the sun. Try it!

    I'm excited to see what everyone comes up with :)

  6. I was stumped too. I found this website to be VERY helpful: http://www.illustratedphotography.com/photography-tips/camera-technique/silhouette-tips

    Also, here are some good examples that inspired me: http://digital-photography-school.com/12-super-silhouette-shots

    now...if I can just find the time to play around with it.
