PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS FOR YOU:
Keep the following in mind when working with shadows. The shape of the shadow might be important. The shape of shadows can be changed. Maybe, a change in the shadow will strengthen your black and white composition. Maybe positioning the shadow differently inside the frame will benefit the contrast and tonal range? Resist the temptation to make all of your shadows absolute black. When our eyes see a shadow, we generally see “into” the shadow. It’s rare that a shadow appears absolute black to our eyes. Sometimes, a very little bit, of absolute black is fine in a full tonal range and balanced contrast photograph. But, the vast majority of shadowed areas should reveal some detail. Maintaining detail in the shadow areas is a combination of exposure and processing. Of course, some very effective black and white photography will be covered with absolute black shadowing. These images are generally special effect images. The dense, (blocked up), shadows hold a special purpose in the final piece of artwork.
