Regular Photo Challenge – Shadows

Weekly Photo Problem – Shadows

“Simply speaking, a shadow is definitely an absence of light. If lighting cannot get through an object, the area on the other side of that object (for example, the ground or a wall) will have less light reaching it” – Science Learning Hub


After the ‘lighting’ theme last week, immediately we’re about the lack of lighting, or ‘shadow’ – and also, unless you live in a black cave, void of lighting, you have no excuses not to go out and capture the shadow in some form – the idea behind these difficulties being to make you think about what you’re photographing and am employed at getting better every time.

I remember the 1st time I took a specific darkness photograph, that’s it above, and it really was that lemon in the late afternoon lighting of the amazing Sahara Wasteland in Morocco… It was a bit typical “People on camels” but it was an amazing experience and I loved the darkness photo (This was a Cannon Powershot Pro 1… need to tell you how long ago that was! ) I’ve been noticing shadow to this day. SO , set off forth and capture shadows! Share them in the responses below, on instagram or Facebook and make sure you tag us! (Details below)
