I Heart Faces- Silhouettes

e_MG_5548 clone

The theme for the I Heart Faces contest this week is “Silhouettes”. I remember as a child having a silhouette done by an artist. They shined a light across the side view of my face, making a shadow on black paper on the wall. They then cut that paper into a silhouette of my face. It was a perfect likeness, but with no details. In photography, it’s really the same thing; the focal object of the picture is between the camera and the sun in such a way as to block out light. All (or nearly all) detail is lost, yet still, you know what you’re looking at. This picture was taken this fall in Destin, FL. We were on our boat, headed to Crab Island at sunset. I had a split second to grab the shot before we moved out of range; so glad that I got it. AND… so glad that our beloved white sands were spared the devastation that seemed inevitable just a couple of months before.
For more amazing silhouette shots, make sure to visit I Heart Faces and from there the blogs of those who linked up. I promise you’ll love it!
