Silhouette photography is a particular favourite of mine, and I try to capture unusual shots rather than simple bright sunlight ones. This photo I think really encapsulates that for me.
I love the blurry outline of the hair when contrasted with the sharp outline of the lips. It is clear that this is a photo of a girl, but so little is given away. The light source, a simple spot light, is almost magical, creating a light blur around it rather than anything harsh. The complete darkness of the rest of the photo assists in adding drama.
It is a great life lesson that can be learned; take what’s ordinary and make it unusual. You’ll never know where you’ll end up.
