I love me a beautiful sunset silhouette photo! This photo is of Kimberly and Jesse during their engagement shoot at Gas Works Park. You can see the full blog post here.
I exposed for the sky and made sure that their bodies were positioned in a way that didn’t make them look like one big black blob. Having him kiss her forehead created just enough space between their heads so that you can see what is happening.
In post processing, I increased the black clippings because she had a white shirt on and you could still see some of the white showing through.
Settings: 50mm 1.4, ISO 320, f/16, 1/400 shutter speed.
