Sinful Sunday Monthly Prompt 8
This month’s prompt is; Silhouette.
The basic strategy for creating a silhouette image is that your light source needs to be behind the subject. The brightness of that light source and the level of darkness that the subject is in will dictate how strong a silhouette you get. You might want to go for something very dark in which case your subject will be a almost completely black against the light or you can vary that and create images that light enough of the subject so that you can still some detail. It really is up to you to play around and see what you come up with.
Below is a list of just some examples of silhouette photography
Penny for your Dirty Thoughts – Sudden Storm – Most of the fine detail of Penny’s form is lost in the darkness but by standing at a side angle she has created a strong outline of her face and breast
Penny for your Dirty Thoughts – Light and Form – Still a strong silhouette but there is bits of light coming in that show detail of her shoulder, breasts and nipple
Love Hate Sex Cake – Blaze – Cheeky Minx has lots of great silhouette images on her site but I picked this one out because of the strong use of colour.
Molly’s Daily Kiss – Blowin’ in the Wind Also, it doesn’t have to be a person for it to be suggestive or erotic
There are tons of tutorials on the internet about silhouette photography, this is just one example; How to photograph silhouettes
Try googling for silhouette images, there are thousands of examples and when also I looked on Tumblr searching for #silhouette #nude and got some really interesting and creative results.
Have fun, be creative and lets see what we all come up with.
The prompt is published here on the site mid month, which will give people approximately 2 weeks to work on their idea before linking in, on the 1st weekend of the month. The prompt is completely optional and you can link in as normal on that weekend whether you have used the prompt or not. The usual Sinful Sunday rules will, of course, apply. Please make sure you have read them recently so that you are fully aware of what is and is not allowed.
As always interpret as you wish, or disregard altogether and do you own thing.
