Shadows and Mood

June 2nd, 2010 by admin Well I get asked allot about mood and shadows. Many people feel that shadows are bad and in my opinion this is just not try. Shadows add mood, and mood is good if you want to get your viewers to look at the image for longer than a quick 3 second glance.

That 3 seconds is not enough time to fully appreciate the image or the story you might be trying to tell.

Shadows make your mind wander and think about the other things the image could be trying to tell or show.

Take the time to play with your lighting setups and experiment with light and shadows, its not always about blasting the subject it is about telling the story with the lights you have and can afford.
