Shadows are all around us, no matter what time of day or season it is, you can always see a shadow if you look hard enough.
The thing is, in general we don’t actively look for shadows – there will be times when we notice a particularly nice, strange, well-defined, etc shadow, and also fun moments when we create shadows with our hands or bodies on a wall.
Photographers, on the other hand, are always looking out for such things as interesting, photogenic shadows in the hope of getting that great, split-second-timing opportunistic shot.
Creative photographers also set up shadow photography applying their lighting skills.
Here we feature nearly 30 outstanding photographs either with the shadow as the sole subject, or as a definitive part of the image.
