Team-Up Thursday: Week Twenty-Six (SILHOUETTE)
This was a fun one! I really love silhouette shots, and I wanted to try to capture one in a new location, somewhere you might not immediately associate with this type of shot. The perfect opportunity presented itself when James and Owen went to hit balls at the driving range. The shot is somehow intimate in the middle of a very public setting as they lean towards each other to study the ball.
And doesn't Melody's just scream FREEDOM? Love the joy captured here, even though the viewer can't see the jumper's expression. That's what I love about silhouettes: the ability to express a feeling just by looking at the outlines of a figure, no face necessary. FYI: This shot looks even better in the large size, so click on over to flickr to see it there.
Looking forward to checking out all the dips this week, here and in the flickr pool. Remember, if you've just been watching, jump into the diptych pool at any time -- we'd love to see your creativity!
Next week, Melody and I will be working on DOORS. Don't let one hit you on the way out...:).
