Bradgate Silhouettes

This post was supposed to be all about silhouettes (as you can tell from the title), which is what I set out to shoot on my little adventure in Bradgate Park but if you read on you'll see why that is not strictly true. If you haven't seen what I have been doing in Bradgate Park then what is wrong with you! It's been my last 4 posts! But I'll forgive you, and be extra nice by giving you the links to them here:



Anyway, as I was saying, I set out to capture some silhouettes when the sun was setting. I have never really done this so it was really experimental. When I was out and about I was surprised by how good the silhouettes seemed to look, it was only until I got home and plugged my SD card in that I saw that they wern't perfect silhouettes as some details and colours of the foreground were still showing. However, for a first try they aren't so bad!

1. Greg as the sun set - This is probably my favourite photo I have ever taken, I am really proud of it!
2. A funky tree
3. A bench in the distance
4. Rex at a distance
5. Hillside and the monument
6. Greg in a field

Have you had any luck taking silhouette photos?

  1. These are so gorgeous! I absolutely adore the 4th one, with the tiny person silhouetted against such gorgeous colours. They are all incredible though!
