Sillo WHAT? Picture taking adventures!

You know how much I adore I heart faces, right?
I mean, seriously, I can't get enough!
I was VERY leery about this weeks theme:
Sill-o-wetts? WHAT?
Sillhouettes
I was SO thankful for this great tutorial!
Even if you aren't an I heart faces fan...
even if taking pictures isn't your favorite thing...
go check this out!
Because someday, you might want to take one!
It was a great tutorial and it is pretty easy!
This is my brother Johnny
and his Oh-So-Sweet wife, Joanna.
They were the nicest models for me.
I love their faces!

If you are in the mood to see some great sites
besides I Heart Faces,
go check out my friend Drew's blog.
She encourages me to try photoshop.
I did try photoshop with this picture.
I don't know if it worked or not.
Also check out Susan Keller's blog.
She is the one that did that tutorial!

Happy picture taking this week!

That picture is really beautiful. Joanna's ponytail makes for a great sillhouette.

I love photography (one of my favourite passtimes) and silhouettes tell us so much in such a minimal way, if you know what I mean.

I just love the kissing and the bit of flare around their faces. I'd say you nailed the silhouette! I wouldn't know that you don't take them every day.

laura said...

How do you get people to pose for you? I have to chase around my husband with a giant stick and threaten not to do the laundry to get him to (grudgingly) oblige! Your picture is so beautiful & natural - looks like a still from a romantic movie.

Kathleen said...

Wow! What a great silhouette picture!

Sonya said...

you did a good job. it would have been really neat if their bodies framed the sun a bit differently though

SKELLER said...

OMGoodness!!!! How did I miss this beautiful image?!? You completely knocked this one out of the ballpark. Truly lovely!!

And thank you for the nice words about my blog. :-)
