I have been waiting for this post topic to come up in our Project 52 challenges for weeks now. I love shadows and I've always been one to notice them before anything else. I will take pictures because of the shadows that I see, and I will take pictures of just shadows alone. They are their own art, and they are just waiting for someone to notice them.
I don't think I've ever taken a picture with shadows where it was planned ahead of time. It's always been one of those fun surprises. For this post I needed to get some shadow images, but nothing turned out as I envisioned. When I quit trying, that's when I finally got something so, we'll start there. . . a new (blurry, ack) action shot with the cutest shadow ever!
I could not NOT take this picture of me and Zoe ( Zoe and I? ) when I noticed our shadows. Zoe was our boarder collie who passed away. I'm so glad I have this picture even if her shadow does look like a tiny brontosaurus. It just make me happy when I look at it. ;O)
Then there are these two images. Hermes was only about 10 weeks old here. I did not position him or plan the shadow, but I did notice it. I just kept shooting and wound up with some winners.
To see what other photographers in the group came up with for this weeks Project 52 post, start with About A Dog Photography, St. Cloud Minnesota.
Have a great weekend!
