WEEK 30 of the 52-Week Photography Challenge – INTERACTIVE SHADOWS.
Look out for shadows whether cast by sunlight or cast by a human light source. See how they fall and where they fall. Are there opportunities for those shadows to interact with the real world and create something unusual?
This can be a challenge inspired by observing shadows lit by sunlight or fixed light sources, or by intentionally creating shadows. With sunlight, there are elongated shadows cast when the sun is low in the sky (as we observed in Week 3).
But with your own shadow creations comes the confidence of knowing exactly where the shadows will fall so you can control and manipulate them. And then you can introduce a new element to make your shadows interactive. You can then choose to further manipulate your image in post editing.
Your Challenge – Create images with interactive shadows.
As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock.
And do please send in your images associated with these challenges – or your other activities as a Club Member. We will publish them on these pages.
