Shadows come in all shapes and sizes. Depending on the time of day, they can be very short, really long, or almost disappear underneath a subject. They can lend mystery to a photo. Some can be very sharp, and others can be soft.
I chose a 6:30 p.m. time frame to do my photography work this week, on a very sunny day. I knew I could possible get some long, and very dark shadows, and some interesting lighting.
In the next photo I went inside the barn, but used the strong sun coming in through the barn doors to help with shadowing.
Finally, I decided to do a black and white shadow photo and experiment with a few harsher shadows.
I think shadow work is fun. There are so many variants of shadows, depending on the time of day and the position of the sun in the sky, or your studio lighting if you are inside. To see what others in the much larger blog circle did this week, start here with Kim Hollis of BARKography, based out of Charlotte, North Carolina. Enjoy your weekend!
