Shooting the Shadows

Light impacts what we see and how we see it. it is the fundamental thing that brings photography to life.

In a lot of photographs it is the lighting that makes or doesn’t make an image work. Knowing how to work with the light will help enormously in capturing photographs that come alive.

The absence of light, darkness, is often overlooked by a lot of photographers because they are too busy concentrating on the light. Shadows play an important role in bringing images to life.

Helping to direct light to a specific point in a composition, shadows can hide and reveal features that you may prefer to be hidden. Shadows also add drama, mood and emotion to the image.

My own style of working with shadows is usually shot during the night or winter mornings when I haven’t the time to photograph on the streets.

Below is a few images of my shadow work.
