I do like playing with shadows especially when it creates and adds to a portrait. The drama and mystery around shadows and darkness that it can bring to an image add interest and intrigue allowing the portrait to stand out.
Take this portrait for example, if it was completely lit and you could see her outfit and a hair at the back of the head, would it have the same interest or do you feel that the added shadows bring something extra?
Love the intrigue the shadows add
It does give it that extra kick along I think
i love shadows and the different ways light can change a photo. this is gorgeous.
Very true. I have a few photo shoots in the works where I will be playing with shadows across the whole body to bring out the shape of the human body.
Thanks, I do like how it turned out.
