My Love of the Silhouette

2010-04-17 33

My love of the silhouette grew with one of my pictures during my virgin roll of LOMO LC-A, shooting on my birthday itself, on my pretty sister’s wedding day. She is…pretty in pink. :)

The picture won a rumble during some older days at Lomography Asia , during the time where the Mr.Pink was launched. And the price of the rumble is the hot sexy Diana Mr. Pink! Oh, God! I’m jumping in joy! Then, I started to shoot whatever, whenever while facing the sunlight, or behind it. My love of Lomo grew from my LOMO LC-A roll number one. I’m now on my 50th roll. There are quite a numbers of dark silhouette pictures in my LCA library, and that’s one of the reason why, I’m in love with my LC-A.

I don’t understand why these kind of silhouette pictures makes a picture extraordinary to me. Is it because it looks dark/black and feel slightly mysterious? Or the outline of the object makes it looks ‘sexier’? I don’t know! I just fall in love with the silhouette!

Do you in love with silhouette, too?

    Against The Sun: Shapes in Contre-jour

    The brighter the sun, the larger the cast of the shadows. Contre-jour, however, does not rely on the shadow, but the figure itself. This photographic technique is used to create stark silhouettes of the subject with the help of direct natural light. Gladly, the Lomographic community has plenty of elegant images in contre-jour. We gathered our favorites.

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.

    Embroidered Pictures by Diane Meyer

    Editing pictures with image manipulation software or a mobile app is not unheard of. An alienation of photos by needle and thread, on the other hand, is an intricate process. Los Angeles-based artist and photographer Diane Meyer has gained instant fame for her embroidered analog photos. In this interview, she talks about adding a new dimension to pictures as well as her source of inspiration and other projects.
