Strong directional light creates strong shadows. Expose for the highlights and see how dark your shadows become.

For Silhouettes place your subject in front of a light source and focus your exposure on the brightest part of your picture (the background) and not the subject of your image.

Try and create a mood by playing with the light and the dark.

Good Luck!

Through the photographs I want to tell the world what happened in this earth. I put forward the essence and meaning of the photos I taken. Therefore my photos are more as it is with a touch of color, contrast naturally without excessive editing. I'm a traveler and photopreneur; taking pictures use SLR since 1989 (analog camera). I do mostly landscape, cityscape, urban / street photography, wild life, architecture, human interest and aerial. As you know, I'm a photographer not "photoshoper"(*), so you can enjoy my work as a real photo not "digital imaging".
