How can I achieve an indoor silhouette photo?


  • Make sure that the background is lit brighter than the subject, and expose for the background. If you can backlight the subject, sometimes you'll get a nice effect. A person in front of a window will usually come out silhouetted whether you want it or not. A silhouette really is just underexposure of the subject relative to something else which is exposed brightly. The greater the dynamic contrast between subject and background, the better the silhouette.
