Are you a fan of silhouette photos? I am. Wikipedia defines silhouette as:
An image of a person, an object or scene consisting of the outline and a featureless interior, with the silhouetted object usually being black.
I find them amazing for with just the background and the subject itself, it already gives a creative feeling of drama, emotion and mystery. And to inspire you with these silhouette photos, I have rounded up here 60 beautiful silhouette photos you may found on Deviantart. Have fun!

Did you enjoy in browsing on these beautiful silhouette photos? Before you leave, I will be giving you simple tips to capture good silhouette photos.
Tips: How To Capture Good Silhouette Photos
Choose a good subject that you want to be blacked out or in silhouette. Make sure the subject that you choose should have a strong and clear outline.
Make sure the background you choose is brighter than the subject itself. And if possible, no light should fall on your subject or a little light may do.
Get your light right by putting it at back of your subject. For instance your source of light is the sun, make sure it is behind your chosen subject. Notice on the round ups above, the light source are behind each subject.
Right exposure is equal to good silhouette photography. If you are in doubt with the exposure, adjust the exposure of the camera you are using. Shooting in different angles also will help in getting the right exposure.
Keep your photos as simple as possible. Put your subject where it will stand out from the rest of the objects on the background. If you are shooting a person or a group of people, it can help if they will pose in a position that the whole outline of the body will be captured well in details.
