PROJECT 52-2-21 Lighting: Shadows
Posted By: mithrandir, 11-27-2009, 05:49 PM

Week 21's emphasis is on including shadows as a key component of the composition. Embrace the sort-of-darkish side Luke.

Here are a few links to get the creative juices flowing:

NYIP - Shadow Photography | Light and Shadow Photography | Cigarette Photo | NYIP

Photography competition: shadow – Telegraph Blogs

Photography: Shadow Pictures

(Pictures for the week 21 competition are to be taken and posted between 20091129 AND 20091206).

NOTE: We have two Seasonal competitions planned for the last two weeks of year two. You may take pictures for these anytime between 20090705 and the posting dates of 20100704 or 20100711. This way you can include your favorite holiday or season whenever it occurs during the year.

1. Anyone and everyone who is interested in eligible. The goal continues to be
have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques with fellow
2. Each week will feature a Theme and Sub-concept for you to explore.
3. Post your single picture in Project 52-2 thread for the week. Explain what
motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly
4. Some post-processing is OK (adjusting white balance, exposure, color
saturation), but let's try to stay away from heavily PP'ed images here. Try to
keep the creativity to photographic techniques and the captures themselves.
5. There is one “Theme Concept” labeled “black and white,” but feel free to post
black and white, sepia, monotone, etc., for any of the other themes.
6. The picture you post should be taken during the week in which the theme is
active to be eligible for judging.
7. Any picture taken from 20090705 to listed closing date is acceptable for the
two “Seasonal” competitions – Projects 52-2-51 & 52.

Wood Shadow in Black and White

I chose the early morning light in a forest setting to achieve a high contrast of light and shadow. The shot was converted to black and white and with the high contrast almost ended up looking like a pen and ink drawing.

Here is my entry for this weeks theme.
Due to the cloudy weather all week up here in PA, I was forced to create my own
light source.
Shot was taken with my latest addition to the Pentax lineup, a Tamron 35-80mm on the macro setting.
