Window Light Silhouette

While not a traditional portrait lighting style, windows are great for creating silhouettes.

Create a profile silhouette of yourself in front of a window. Put it in a post with the category Week 9 – Window Light Portraits – Profile Silhouette.

If you are working with a cameraphone, this will take a bit of coordination. Set the exposure for out the window. Bring your result into Lightroom (mobile or classic).

Lightroom App

At a minimum:

Straighten it with Geometry. Under Light, bring down the blacks.


Lightroom Classic:

Use Transform to straighten. In the basic panel, make the blacks darker.
