A silhouette is the view of an object or scene consisting of only the outline and a featureless interior, with the silhouetted object usually being black.
In photography, it means that the object is backlit and appears dark against a lighter background. This happens especially around sunset, when the sun is going behind the mountains or other objects, and those objects become backlit…or, in the case of Clay Aiken, it happens on stage when Clay steps out of the spotlight!
Each one of these photos is a real gem. The photographer was able to catch a moment on stage that, even as a silhouette, tells a story. A big thank – you to all the “Clack-gatherers” who share their talent with the entire ClayNation. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have a photogenic person as the subject!
Which one of these pictures is your favorite? Can you remember when these pictures were taken? (I can’t).
