Sometimes you just gotta turn around and go back. I struggle with shooting things for fun these days. I love creating for clients but I’m working on getting back into personal projects. Shooting for fun.
A few weeks ago I was finishing up a senior portrait session. I had already packed up and was leaving the parking lot of a public park when I spotted this silhouette scene.
It just happened to be the perfect time of day when the sun was beginning to set.
I shot for about 10 minutes with my Nikon and my iPhone while two boys and their grandmother flew kites high above the setting sun. The more I shot the more intense the colors became.
My first ever silhouette was by accident. The flash didn’t fire and the subjects were completely dark. But the sky looked amazing.
