This challenge is all about taking the background light and using it to create captivating silhouettes. Contrast will be your best friend in this challenge. Strong directional light creates strong shadows. Expose for the highlights and see how dark your shadows become. Place your subject in front of a light source and focus your exposure on the brightest part of your picture (the background) and not the subject of your image. Try and create a mood by playing with the light and the dark.
Good Luck to everyone and don't be afraid to experiment!!
Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.
Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
