Tutorial Tuesday: Guest Tutorial – Shooting Silhouettes

Welcome to Tutorial Tuesday! Sarah of Naptime Momtog and I will be bringing you a new challenge every week, to stretch your shooting and editing skills. This week we have another guest tutorial from Jaymi about silhouettes. Here is a little bit about the lovely lady behind our guest tutorial this week:
My name is Jaymi and I blog at Live, Love, Travel. I am 30 years old, an ex Film Student from Cal State Long Beach and now I work in the TV industry in LA. I love to travel the world; my last two trips were to Paris and Bali and before that I’ve been to Taiwan, Prague, and most of Western Europe. I have spent the last year or so actively trying to learn and improve my photography and I love to blog about my progress so that others can learn as well! 

Jaymi’s tutorial today is all about shooting silhouettes. Be sure to click HERE (which will take you to Sarah’s blog) to read her full tutorial…and see some of her beautiful silhouettes – my favorite of which is her jumping silhouette (below on the left). Unfortunately, I haven’t had much luck in the past shooting silhouettes (other than one of my favorite shots of Kitty Paw – below on the right) so I will personally be taking a lot of notes…and hopefully trying it out as soon as I get a little sunshine and a willing subject.
