I remember my first silhouette shot. It was during the KkrewBs Photoshoot back in 2015.
I never knew how to edit or modify the photo in any way. I just loved the dark figures that formed from light. From then I have never stopped shooting silhouettes.
My next stop was in Uhuru Park where my photographer friend and I experimented the Nikon D3200 for the first time.
Then we decided to get more creative…
We happened to go for a hangout at Nairobi Safari Walk and my thirst for silhouettes was never quenched by these.
Ngong Hills never filled my hunger either…
Then during a worship experience in CITAM Thika Road, a pianist friend of mine asked for a photo and I shot a silhouette instead. From that day on they nicknamed me ‘Silowet’
On a trip to Mombasa, I chose to shoot silhouettes at dawn
And that fused with figures of people become masterpieces.
Ever seen a silhouetted version of the Vasco Da Gamma Pillar?
How about a silhouetted landscape? Took these at Amboseli
You can also get a little creative with silhouettes.
My love for silhouettes is unquenchable – my profile picture on social platforms is a silhouetted portrait of me. This is why I say, “I am made of Dark”
