SHADOWS: Weekend Photography Challenge

SHADOWS: Weekend Photography Challenge

Image by Rufus Gefangenen

Your Challenge this weekend is to take and share a photo or two with the theme of ‘Shadows’. The theme was suggested by Karen Haywood on our Facebook Page (‘like’ it and you’ll be notified next week when we call for suggestions for the next theme).

Shadows are something we often don’t think about in the composition of images (at least many times it slips my mind) but I find that when I do give it some thought it can often help to create an image with mood, depth, texture and interest.

It should be something that most of us has access to – whether it be natural shadows (long shadows at the end of the day, shadows from buildings or other structures etc) or shadows that we create with some artificial light (I’m thinking moody portraits with part of the face in shadows for example).

Feel free to get creative and interpret the them in any way that you wish – but if you’re looking for some inspiration do check out our previous shadow image collection.

Once you’ve taken your ‘Shadow’ photos – choose your best 1-2, upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and share a link to them here in comments below.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #dPSSHADOWS to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

PS: if you enjoy these kinds of challenges, don’t forget that each week in our photography assignment section where you’re also given a theme and can take a shot to share with the dPS community.
