Bastet’s Challenge this week:
We all know that light is the most essential part of photography. Without light, in fact we get no images at all, even if our eyes can see something cool we’d like to photograph the picture usually comes out nearly black, to confirm this, try to take a photo at night without a particularly good camera, special filters etc.
Sometimes the opposite happens. The light is just too bright and you get a lot of “white”, there’s little contrast or too much. Sometimes that photo can’t be saved even if you’re a master of Photoshop ™ … as Leanne Cole, who talked about the problem last year.
But what I want to do today is play with light. Specifically shadows!
Straight lines, natures line and my wintery shadow! These are photos where I found the shadows caught my eye.
Here…the light between the shadow caught my eye.
Once you start looking for Hidden Mickey’s you never quite stop. 😉
When I think of playing with shadow’s I think of Peter Pan’s playful shadow and the scene where Wendy sewed it back on.
Wendy: Where do you live?
Peter: Second to the right, and then straight on till morning.
Wendy: They put that on the letters?
Peter: Don`t get any letters.
Wendy: But your mother gets letters.
Peter: Don`t have a mother.
Wendy: No wonder you were crying.
Peter: I wasn`t crying about mothers. I was crying because I can`t get this shadow to stick. And I wasn`t crying.
