How To Enter The Next Photo Contest

Shooting silhouette photos is a great way to create striking images with your iPhone.

Silhouettes add drama, mystery and interest to a photo, emphasizing the shape of the subject and creating a strong focal point in the composition.

While they look extremely impressive, silhouette photos are surprisingly easy to capture with your iPhone.

Simply shoot towards the sun or a strong light source, tap to set focus, then swipe down to reduce the exposure until your subject appears as a dark shape against the brighter background.
