Silhouette of a Fisherman

1.27 k

Hi, I just wanted to share this photo that I captured on August 5, 2023, when I was just starting my journey in photography. There are many reasons why I love this photo aside from the fact that I had zero knowledge in photography and just wanted to take some fresh air outside. So, a little backstory: It was around 5 pm when I decided to go to the nearest lake here in Cabuyao, Laguna, Philippines, called "Laguna de Bay," after long hours of studying. Being a newbie in photography, I had a lot of questions for myself since I did not know what to capture or if I was doing things correctly. Turning my camera on was indeed the best motivation for me to capture moments at that time. So, when I spotted him fishing and the sun setting in the distance, I suddenly got the bright idea and asked for his permission before taking a silhouette of him. As you can tell, I am very proud of this photo. However, if there are any ways to give feedback on how I can improve my photography skills, please do. I would really appreciate it! Hope you get inspiration from this.
