Shadows and Silhouettes – creative photography

Our photography subject for our Wednesday 2 September 2020 meet-up at Haven Arms, Hedon, is ‘Shadows and Silhouettes – how to be creative with them’.

Our photography subject for our Wednesday 2 September 2020, 7pm meet-up at Haven Arms, Hedon, is ‘Shadows and Silhouettes – how to be creative with them’.

Shadows are cast by the subject. Silhouettes are backlit. New to photography? We’ll help you use your camera creatively.

We hope to be outside using the setting sun as our light source weather permitting, but will be indoors with flashes and props otherwise.

Wednesday’s activity is part of a regular weekly programme of activities that will now be organised from or at our base at the Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon. We will be primarily using the outside area of the pub for activities but have the option to gather indoors during inclement weather – and of course, we can benefit from refreshments at the pub!

#NOTE: Social-distancing and contact & trace measures apply.

Hedon-based, free, fun and friendly photography club.

Task 18 – Shadows and Silhouettes!


Shadows
are cast by the subject with the light in front of them.


Silhouettes
(yes, I had to check the spelling too!) are created with the light behind the subject. Have a go at both – look for interesting shapes.

This photo from Pam Watson is an example of both!
