It’s time for our monthly photo competition, and this month’s subject is Silhouette Photography!

Silhouettes are a beautiful and unique way to capture striking images that tell a story, and they’re fairly easy to learn with some basic tips and practice.

To help you get started, we’ve created a blog post with the Best Examples of Silhouette Photography, featuring 10 photo ideas and tips to inspire you. If you want to give this technique a try, we have two creative courses coming up: Night Photography on Monday 15th of May and Creative Practice on Sunday 28th of May. Sign up now to improve your skills and take your photography to the next level.

My transition from web design to photography started about 15 years ago, after my first trip to Central America. Disappointed with pictures in auto, I decided to take matters into my own hands and learn how to use the camera to its full potential in manual mode and improve my photography.
