EXPERIMENTING WITH SHADOWS

IN PHOTOGRAPHY

The January 9, 2015, WordPress photo challenge is shadowed: Low-light photography can be difficult to get right, but sometimes the absence of light can make for a compelling, dramatic photograph. Experimenting with shadows can be a fun and rewarding way to push yourself to try something new with your camera and your surroundings, and look beyond the obvious shot.

I’ve experimented with shadows through the years. Below are some of the results:
