We are at Week 37 of professional pet photography blog circle Project 52 and out theme of “shadows.” Photography is nothing more than manipulating the light and shadows. Shadows are often used to convey a certain mood or to create atmosphere. Shadows can also provide depth and dimension. Thehy can also simply reflect the time of day. 

Because of a busy schedule this week and an uncooperative sky (raining and then overcast) I wasn’t able to do any new shadow images, but here are some images I’ve created in the past that do have a shadow element.

The first image up uses shadows to provide an element of mystery and mood. 

In the next image, the long shadows indicate that is late in the day.

The shadows in the next image help create depth.

The shadow in this image extends the subject.

For more shadows visit Lynda Mowat from Heartstrings Photography, based in Hamilton, New Zealand, and after that check out the rest of the blog posts until you circle right back here.
