Bird Silhouette


August 2014 – Canada, British Columbia

Photo taken by Vasiliki Papacharalambous

When many people think of bird photography, they think of tight cropped, detailed pictures of birds. Using silhouettes in photography can provide beautiful and artistic photos.

This photo is of a Great Horned owl at a mountain national park in Canada (can’t remember its name right now). The photo was taken at mid-day with the light of the sun coming from overhead and the clouds adding character to the sky.

Birds photos created using silhouette photography techniques can produce stunning silhouette images especially at sunrise or sunset.
