Day 22: Darks and Lights

With the sun setting earlier and earlier each evening, it's easier to really notice the sky's transformation from day to night. There is something mysterious about an autumn sky. When you shoot your subject against the dusk, you can capture pretty amazing silhouettes. This gives you the opportunity to focus your editing on one major element: the color of the sky.

Shoot a silhouette today and then take that shot into your photo-editing software and play with sky treatments. Light, darks, contrast, vignettes, color…whatever tickles your autumn fancy!


Well, I only had about 30 minutes of good dusk light to work with for this one. I've been lamenting the lack of natural light for these week-day shots, so this prompt came at a good time to stretch my skills a bit. Eowyn went for a short drive to the river to see about getting some silhouettes, took a couple of pictures and came home. The shot I chose was taken from our drive way. So glad we went for a drive...
