Photographing ‘Bolting’ Meme in Silhouettes


Did you watch the 2012 Summer Olympics in London? If you saw the Men’s 100M and 200M finals, you will probably know what my son and I are doing in these photos.

A member from the CTE-Salt Lake City photography groups I participate in issued a great photo challenge – Silhouettes. While I have occasionally taken photos with a subject between my camera and the sun, I have never done silhouettes indoors using an off-camera flash – but it worked and has sparked my interest in shooting a few other things to capture a silhouette of various ‘space’ objects.
