Backlid shots

All these great silhouette couple photography ideas would need you to shoot with the sun, our primary source of light, at the back of your subjects. Timing is the most important since you can only shoot this type of photos around sunrise or sunset.

Body Composing is important

With our main subjects blacken, facial expressions are not needed. On the other hand, body composing is the main key to express emotion.

Background color sets mood and tone

Color of background will also set the mood and tone of your photos. Normally, just keep it simple, avoid messy objects. You can also use normal photography techniques such as the Fibonacci ratio, 9-points ratio, leading lines, etc..

Go out, and have fun!

All these silhouette couple photos are hard, but really fun to do. That’s all for my homework today. Keep up a good work bros! Share your photos in the comment sections, and I will feature them in this post.
