Photography Tips and Tricks - 23

May 17, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

A natural follow-up to last week's tip is to look for shadows.   The first tip is to notice shadows like you notice light.  Is the shadow harsh with defined lines or is it a subtle diffused shadow?  Another aspect of shadows that has caused me issues is how the shadows are hitting my subject.  I have taken several photos that have unwanted shadows across my subject that I didn't notice until I got home.

What I have learned here is that shadows need to be observed and understand how they will be interacting with my photo.

I am glad you found my blog.  I am a photographer with a passion for awesome shots.  I go to great lengths to capture many of my photos.  I will re-visit a location over and over knowing there is a spectacular photo just waiting to be had if I am there at the right time.   I also enjoy finding how to do some abstract projects (check out my time-lapse post) and will be writing about them.

Send me a note via my contact page for some projects you would like to see me try and write about.  I am not afraid to try almost any project.  Doing the obscure forces me to do things that I don't do with the typical photo shoot and helps me learn even more.
