SILHOUTTES
 



     
 


I was driving around a village when I saw some kids repairing a bicycle under a big shady tree. Together with the bright city skyline, they provided a perfect opportunity for a silhouette picture.

Story: Be your own judge
Most good camera exposure systems figure something is wrong when the foreground is exceedingly dark and will dutifully compensate. The result is overexposed background (left). To work around, zoom in on the background and use exposure lock to override the auto metering. Recompose.

I also switched to aperture priority mode and kept the iris wide for a shallower depth of field. What's exposure lock and aperture priority? Read your manual.
