Listen to Me is a heart-warming silhouette of a small child and a very large horse.
To capture a silhouette you need a subject that has a recognizable shape. Then place your subject in front of a bright light and expose for the brightest part of your image - the background. You also need to keep your shapes distinct and uncluttered. Keep some space between the shapes. Here you see all four of the horse's legs, both ears and the tail. On the child you can make out the features of the face, cowboy hat, finger and the lead rope. All combine to tell a story.
