Light is everything. Light means color and shadow.
I've just found this great meme called "Shadow Shot Sunday" at Hey Harriet blog, with stunning light/ shadow images.
Light and shadow make things come to life on a photo and they are on everything. Even though we don't notice them, subtle shadows help create a physical existence, bring substance to photos.
Without its shadow an object is not defined in space, it seams to float in thin air.
Light and shadow add visual interest and provide dimension, perspective.
The appearance of light and shadow tells us a lot about the surfaces and textures of the elements in a composition and also guide the eye to the focal point.
The softer the light, the softer the shadow. The stronger the light, the darker and sharper the shadow and these strong shadows create amazing forms.
Visit Shadow Shot Sunday for many beautiful light/shadow shots.
