Evening Surf at Saltburn

Evening surf at Saltburn, even though it was small, good light and a nice sunset afforded the opportunity to take some silhouette shots of a couple of friends down on the beach in Saltburn.

No photoshop trickery here apart from normal darkroom techniques – dodging and burning and slight contrast and levels alterations.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with Black and White, even though the light was good.

The key to a successful silhouette is to keep the composition fairly simple yet have a strong subject matter.
