PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS FOR YOU:
Shadows help the viewer understand the subject’s context. That’s because thanks to the shadows we can understand where the light is coming from, what other elements might be outside the frame, etc. This is an effective use of shadows in photography and cinema. You can use it indoors – as shown in the above example – but also outdoors. You can understand the time of day by seeing the size and position of the shadow’s shape. For example, when the shadow is long it means the sun is closer to the horizon.
