Photo Assignment:
Create Silhouette Effect

Share Your Photo Results With Us

How you capture light can truly define an image. You can use light to create everything from saturated colour to ethereal mist to stark silhouettes  in your images.


In this photo assignment, the task is to create a silhouette effect in your image. You can photograph landscapes and people or any other subject for that matter. For best results try taking the image with strong late afternoon or early morning sun in front of you in order to be able to create a silhouette.
