You all must have sceen people making various shapes and doing different art only by using shadow.
Why not do some similar things in photography.
Basically people doing shadow art simply play with their shadow and make different shapes.
Normally, people use their hands, some people even use few objects.
If using an object, the shadow art has to depend upon the shape of the object.
If we make proper use of shadow in photography , some common photographs may also look amazing..!!!
Do not use shadow when not needed.
Normally use shadow when you feel, that adding shadow to our subject will add a special look into it.
Common mistakes rookie photographers do are when they are on a job, they allow their object to stand in front of the light and ultimately their shadow falls below the object, as a result the shadow of the photographer also gets involved in the photo, resulting in a bad photography.
Simply try to avoid this.
Proper use of light along with shadow is must.
If you personally think shadow of a particular object doesnot matches with the scene then donot involve shadow of that object in the photo, instead just change the angle of the photograph to be taken.
But using shadows in color photographs can add a lot strength in it, as we can use it in a variety of ways.
So try to use it your way…!!!
