Shooting Silhouette Shots With a Single Light Inside a Studio

Everyone loves a nice silhouette shot. You can create them outdoors during the dusk and dawn hours. But what if you can create such shots inside your studio space with a single light anytime, any day? This video shows you how to get started.

This video comes from Adorama TV as Gavin Hoey takes us through his experience of shooting silhouette shots inside his home studio using a one-light setup. The subject, the lighting, and the background are the main elements that you need to take into account. In this video, he chooses a model with a bicycle and a couple of balloons for the subject. Yes, it is only a single light source, but it is interesting how he experiments to achieve the effect he needs. Trying multiple times with the lighting setup is critical to attaining that perfect background effect. When you are finally done with the shots, it is time for some post-processing to get precision, where it is mostly about the contrast and the blacks. It is nice to see how he makes the balloons vivid towards the end, adding a tint of color to the drama. Take a look at the video for the full rundown on the shooting process and the technique.
