Shadows: Weekly Photography Challenge


Earlier today we published our post – 25 Images with Shadows – which we hope gave you a little inspiration.

Shadow images
Now it is your turn.

We’d love you to to grab your camera and over the next week look for some shadow images because that’s the theme for this weeks challenge. Take a shadow photo and then share it with us as outlined below.

Once you’ve taken your ‘Shadow’ shots we’d love to see them in comments below. Simply upload your shot into the comment field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section as pictured below) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see or if you’d prefer upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and leave the link to them.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSPINK 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.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks Pink challenge – there were some great shots submitted.

    This is my first submission. I have been reading your weekly newsletter for over two years now and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. I have learned SO much. I can’t tell you how grateful I am for the continuous flow of excellent and valuable lessons you include each week. And yes, I love your challenges, though this is my first post. Here is a picture from a friend’s wedding this past August. This was a fun picture to take…which was taken in front of the twin Bluewater Bridges in Sarnia, ON Canada. This location is where Lake Huron flows into the St. Clair River. This is an international border…which crosses over to Port Huron, Michigan USA.

    This was taken March 2013 while on a Swamp Tour in the everglades. It was amazing to see these turtles basking in the sun…and to get a beautiful shadow of them in the water!!!

    I always carry a portable camera with me. Sometimes you find unespected even peculiar and beautiful things. Many times you barely have the time to give it a single shot, like with this cat. As I was preparing for a second one, the shadow of the cat was gone.
