Thanks to the magic that is the internet, I read Thomas Hawk’s tweet about silhouettes, which lead me to this article about photographing silhouettes. Now, I’m thinking, what kind of mouthbreather do you have to be to need that kind of tutorial. Eight steps to take a picture without a lit foreground? How about one step: take a picture of something that’s backlit while exposing for the background. I just saved you dudes a good 5 minutes reading that article.
Now you have a gimmick you can use instead of actually being creative and taking a good picture!
