I find silhouette photography to be incredibly intriguing. It can be utilized in such a way that an interest generating subject is in silhouette (wiki), offering a sense of mystery and adding to viewer engagement. Or it can be done so that the majority of the subject matter is completely back lit and in silhouette. This latter case offers a very different look at an everyday subject.
The photographers of Warmpicture are always uploading exciting images, so I decided to run an image search in the database using the keyword “silhouette.” There were some spectacular results! I compiled my 11 favorites to inspire your future work, and also lend you ideas for your graphic design projects.
