The last few Monthly Themes may not have been challenging enough for our members so this month’s theme of ‘Shadows’ gives you the opportunity to be more creative and let your imagination run riot. Photography is often defined as painting with light, but it’s the shadows that are so important. The give the object its form and depth. They create texture and contrast. They can be the main subject themselves. If you can’t get out you can also create your own shadows in a still life setup at home. If you use your own lights you’ll have full control over the length and shape of the shadows. This theme will help you look and find images more making you more observant. Shadows can also make excellent lead-in lines for a photograph or frame the main subject.
I’ve found some excellent examples at iphotography to inspire you here.
The ‘My Modern Met’ website give some excellent advice here.
