< beach sunsets >
The California beach sunset slide show of approx. 9 images
was designed with color match, to show mostly silhouettes,
and mostly browns and golds.
The pictures taken
include two surfers, palm trees, a bird, people, the sky, a plaza area at
the beach and pier pilings with the filtered sun breaking through them.
This time of day lends to silhouettes. Silhouettes are all about angles. The
sun must be in a particular position backlighting a subject enough to strip
away the color of that object, thus creating a shape or form seen in images
above. You can actually take silhouette photos in the daylight as
well, but it's tricky getting the sun in the right position behind the
subject matter to create that stark contrast.
Vacation photos of sunsets can be so fun to take. Just head
for your favorite spot and wait for the sun to drop. Right
before you eyes you can see the colors changed and the
camera seems to capture the moments with great splendor.
