Am Made of Dark

Happy soul ultra pro max!

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…

  • Touch the tip
  • The Pyramid

We happened to go for a hangout at Nairobi Safari Walk and my thirst for silhouettes was never quenched by these.

  • Peace
  • Sun Silhouette

Ngong Hills never filled my hunger either…

  • Lady Silhouette
  • Hair Silhouette
  • Girl Silhouette

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

  • Sunrise Ocean
  • Sunrise Golden Hour Boat

And that fused with figures of people become masterpieces.

  • Bliss
  • Sunrise Hands
  • Sunrise-Jump

Ever seen a silhouetted version of the Vasco Da Gamma Pillar?

How about a silhouetted landscape? Took these at Amboseli

  • Sunrise in Amboseli
  • Dry Tree in 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”

  1. 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.

There are those days where you lazily go home. The days you ask yourself what would have happened if you refused to be pushed off your mother’s cervix and just stayed intact attached to your food resource pipe and eternally moonwalked inside the womb.

How many of you have seen a jini? And I don’t mean Genie in a bottle. You know there is a difference between a genie and a jini? I think a genie is white; either British or from the US. You see the way you set up your new laptop or phone and you are asked to choose your language?
