The Weekly Photo Challenge: Shadow

Light and Shadow

Light that create a shadow -different sides of the same coin:) I love the structure of shadows on the wall and the possibility to create different structures, playing with different light and source of light. Of course the shadow is also created by the object in focus. These components are one of the central things in photography, when I take photos indoors. I think it’s similar to all artistic expressions, that it is all about playing with and interpreting the surroundings. Fun and enjoyable!

This post is a interpretation of the theme in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. I hope you enjoy the picture and if you would like to see more photos of shadows please click here.

Black and white -simple but powerful

I love black and white photos. But it is hard to get them good. When the colors are gone we are left to mix with contrast, shadows and light. It can be hard work but can also be a hit when you succeds. Here are some photos I have edited in Photoshop. The first photo is from last summer, a bridge nearby. The beautiful wallpainting is taken in Stockholm. The portrait is of Christer, the painter you can find in this blog.

I wonder about the “Explored”. It is a strange phenomenon. I have got 6 photos there during the last week. Earlier it’s just 3 before in all time. I know that there is some statistics in it and that “they” sort out  the photos that have a lot of views, but still it is a mystery:) Maybe this gives a hint; wikihow. Or just keep on taking photos because it is so much fun! Chasing the Explore will maybe ruin all the happines in my work.

My latest picture on Explored is this one:

It is taken outside the City Hall in Stockholm, Sweden.

I have taken been experimenting some with shadows before. I think they can be  interesting. And make interesting photos. Here is another example of that:
