To think of shadows is a serious thing.
- Victor Hugo
Carmi, makes an excellent point about shadows "not being the easiest optical phenomena to shoot."
For instance, I played with the shadow of this statue.
I'm pleased, with how her shadow, appears as though it's ready to get up and move on.
"In every shadow there is light."
My next photo, both the statue and the shadow never pleased me, and I'm surprised I haven't deleted it yet.
I guess it's my weakness for dogs, that keeps me from erasing it.
As you can see, I kept getting in the way of this picture.
"Keep your face always toward the sunshine, and shadows will fall behind you."
It seems for me, more often than not, I catch many welcomed shadows in my nature scenes. They just seem to double the beauty for me.
Believe it or not, this was taken outside of Las Vegas, Nevada.
This was taken in my backyard.
This is another photo that screams delete, delete, please let me go! Although, my point was the Monarch, and it works. Again, I felt the shadows improved the rest of the photo.
