    @bestcee I actually figured out a combination of papers and preset that match just perfect so I went with a colour version after all. But maybe someone else decided to go b/w.
    Now I only need proper daylight to photograph it ... challenges of hybrid life :shrug

    I was up before the sunrise, wanted to take a photo of the gorgeous colors that had been gracing our sky almost daily. But today, there was nothing, just an intense cloud cover. So on to plan B, shooting toward a window with my outdoor/indoor plants in view. I hope this will work for the challenge, in particular the silhouette of the tall grass.

    Same here. We are in our 8 months of grays here in Michigan. Seriously everyone is on 50k vitamin D due to lack of sunshine

    With some help from my hubby, we got it!
    Day 14: Photography Technique - Silhouette
    Take a NEW as of today or after today photo with main subject as the silhouette.

    I used papers and elements from All About Me, YOU, and US.

    My main subject is Phil JR (upper right photo) and his papa, Papa Phil lower photo. - the journaling tells a story about Phil and Phil Jr.

    Does the subject need to be totally blacked out or can a dark image or low light image qualify?

    I posted an additional link in the Q &A post. Think lights in your house. Perhaps a book or other object in front of a lamp?

    What about a camera or other prop? You could celebrate your photography business? You got this!

    It does not need to be totally black, but it should be a silhouette and not just a dim photo. Does that help?

    Had to wait all day for the sun to come out and then found a very cooperative plant.

    Thanks for the fun challenge @bestcee - I hijacked my DD Stephanie to take a bunch of silhouette pictures until I got one that I liked.
