    Shadows, shadows...

    Photography is all about light, so I guess it's also all about shadows. Bring out best images of yours that have shadows as the main subject!

    Just to start the thread:



    BTW, I started my one month visit to University of Trento, Italy. Such a beautiful town - the weather and the size of the town is a nice change from London I'll go out and take some pictures during the weekend.

    I think I may have posted this one in another thread at one point in time, but it seems to qualify for this one.

    Nice shots, especially the first one, but they're silhouettes, not shadows.

    Sorry didn't really think to differentiate.

    This was shot with an Epson R-D1, so it's not strictly a small sensor picture but it's the shadow of the art deco railing of a Metro station in Paris.

    Great idea for a thread, and quite inspirational... thanks everyone. I must take more notice of shadows, a real art form in itself I think!



    Kind Regards

    You got it Woody! It is indeed Jay Maisel from his "Light, Gesture and Color" workshop last year in Seattle at Art Wolfe's studio. I knew Art from a previous workshop and lectures as we lived in Seattle for 10 years.

    During Jay's workshop, we took a break (at Art's studio) and noticed this shaft of incredibly intense light striking a wall. Jay immediately challenged us to say what it might be from, and then proclaimed it was a reflection off a car windshield... and indeed it was.

    Cheers,

    Will, that cat shot is fantastic. Strong lighting, and the shadow looks like a wolf except for the hair standing on end.

    This page is kind of spooky! Great shots.

    Here's me as a pinhead with my Pentax Optio W60 this morning--opening day of deer season here in Maine.

    Love the angle of your image Lisa.

    This would be rated stunning if taken during Il Palio!
