Three from a shoot last weekend. I hadn't planned on shooting any silhouettes, but the sun just happened to be in the right place so we shot a set.

Er - those aren't silhouettes, technically. Very high contrast, minimally lit surfaces - but not silhouettes.
As high contrast portraits, kind of like the second.
Thanks for sharing.

A Silhouette typically has a lighter background, just showing the outline of the subject. The subject will have no light falling on it at all. These are high contrast images and I like them. I think the pose in #2 works the best.



Here's an attempt at a silhouette I shot a few years ago. This one has a little light falling back on the subject, so technically not a silhouette either, but it gives you the idea.

I'm with everyone else, I like photo number 2 the best. It is sort of a classic pose, but I guess that is why it is a classic . . . because it is attractive.

jfords comments would be correct. High in contrast but not silhouettes.

On the original shots........ regardless of what you would call them...... ;-) .... I would go with the second shot. I think the drame of the light fits this pose the best.

I would think about (this may seem very minor....but) correcting the shape formed on her abs by the light. Specifically the "buldge" under her left breast. I would liquify that in PS to make it a straight line. Purely anal........ but just what bothered me.....

Great shots though..... I like the idea.
