Imagine visiting a place where every afternoon was the most amazing sunset you’ve ever seen…until the next day. Boracay island might be paradise, and made for some amazing sunset silhouettes. Loved it!
Boracay Sunset Silhouettes!
Nearly every day in Boracay finished with one of the most beautiful sunsets I’d ever seen!
The Boracay beaches were fairly empty until around 5pm, when the sun began to set. This below photo is of Frisbee Silhouettes!
The gorgeous Boracay sky turned orange, red and purple, and made for some awesome sunset silhouettes. The colors are simply stunning!
There’s nothing quite like experiencing a breathtaking sunset.
How to photograph silhouettes
Assuming you work in Auto mode, turn your flash off. The key to photographing silhouettes is to meter on the background sky, instead of the subject. Most cameras autofocus as soon as you press the shutter halfway. Aim at the bright part of the sky, then press and hold your shutter halfway. Keep it pressed halfway as you adjust to what you want in your frame. When you’re ready to take the photo squeeze the shutter fully. Bam!

I also put together some of our favorite jumping photo sunset silhouettes in Boracay with red and orange sky backdrops.
By popular demand, I’ve started to organize the series of Sunset Silhouettes at this link. Enjoy!
