Welcome to Day Two of the TFTTF Workshop (explained below Oct. 11). This was for the assignment: Silhouette without using the Rule of Thirds. I struggled for a while to find something to silhouette on this typical gray rainy day. I eventually saw this dandelion and went to work on it. I found the McDonald’s wrapper in a trash can near by (it was right on top and pretty clean, and yes, I put it back). Placing Matt’s Nikon 800 strobe under the edge and taking lots of shots to get the light in the right place, I managed to get a silhouette.
I like the yellow background for the recognizable dandelion shape, sort of a negative space effect.
