There are many short clips on the TikTok platform in which the authors implement certain ideas for their content and viewers. One such idea is the Silhouette Challenge. The word ‘challenge’ directly implies comparing the performance of certain authors with different connotations. Most often it is performed by girls with a good and trim figure, which you want to show and not violate the rules of posting content at the same time. That is how the idea of a silhouette challenge was born.
Silhouette effect explained
What do we need for this? Everything is very simple here. Fix your camera on a tripod in front of the door frame. The door frame itself will be the main location for our action.
Let us start filming. Start the track ‘Paul Anka - Put Your Head On My Shoulder’ to understand the rhythm to move and perform your dance in front of your camera, smoothly moving to the doorway. At the climax, freeze into a specific pose and end the clip there.
Next, we simply turn off the lights in the room with the camera and turn on the lights in the room in the background behind the doorway. Make sure that this light is dimmed to get a silhouette effect in the shot. Now we record the second clip. You need to take off all unnecessary clothes (within reason or at your own risk) and start recording the second clip before taking our key position. In this way, we get the transition from you freezing in the doorway to turning off the light and the appearance of a silhouette emphasizing your forms.
