Silhouettes

Derry Girls.

One of my favourite photo-techniques is the silhouette. This involves exposing for a bright background and leaving the subject in deep shadow.

In Londonderry I made this silhouette of a girl, sitting looking out the window of a cafe. Silhouettes are good for this kind of candid shot, for the identity of the ‘Derry Girl’ remains shrouded in mystery.
