The theme of today’s photo challenge, as offered weekly at The Daily Post, is “Shadowed.” The premise is that, “Experimenting with shadows can be a fun and rewarding way to push yourself to try something new with your camera and your surroundings, and look beyond the obvious shot.”
So today I’m posting some “shadow” photos that I’ve taken recently.
But what I think would be really fun and rewarding would be to experiment with using shadow as a main element in a stained glass panel. Note to self: add that to the queue of design ideas to play with.
“The beginnings and ends of shadow lie between the light and darkness and may be infinitely diminished and infinitely increased. Shadow is the means by which bodies display their form. The forms of bodies could not be understood in detail but for shadow.”
Leonardo da Vinci
“Without black, no color has any depth. But if you mix black with everything, suddenly there’s shadow – no, not just shadow, but fullness. You’ve got to be willing to mix black into your palette if you want to create something that’s real.”
“Shadow is a colour as light is, but less brilliant; light and shadow are only the relation of two tones.”
