I remember my first silhouette shot. It was during the KkrewBs Photoshoot back in 2015.
I never knew how to edit or modify the photo in any way. I just loved the dark figures that formed from light. From then I have never stopped shooting silhouettes.
My next stop was in Uhuru Park where my photographer friend and I experimented the Nikon D3200 for the first time.
Then we decided to get more creative…
We happened to go for a hangout at Nairobi Safari Walk and my thirst for silhouettes was never quenched by these.
Ngong Hills never filled my hunger either…
Then during a worship experience in CITAM Thika Road, a pianist friend of mine asked for a photo and I shot a silhouette instead. From that day on they nicknamed me ‘Silowet’
On a trip to Mombasa, I chose to shoot silhouettes at dawn
And that fused with figures of people become masterpieces.
Ever seen a silhouetted version of the Vasco Da Gamma Pillar?
How about a silhouetted landscape? Took these at Amboseli
You can also get a little creative with silhouettes.
My love for silhouettes is unquenchable – my profile picture on social platforms is a silhouetted portrait of me. This is why I say, “I am made of Dark”
And you keep inspiring me with your pieces of art. This reminds me of when you taught me how to take long exposures. I hunger to read and learn more. So keep on sharing.
Thanks bro. Let’s keep inspiring each other. Am still waiting for an article on your blog.
Thanks bro for always stopping by and for the compliment.
