Creatively Outstanding Shadow Photography

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.

Beautiful and Colourful Single Flower Photographs

Mother Nature provides us with a plethora of colours and textures that we pass by every day – whether it is a stroll in the park, walking to work, walking the dog or even just looking out of the window… there is colour and texture all around us.

Photographers who have great creativity and imagination can take advantage of all that is offered to us through the lens of their camera.

It’s true that one flower does not make a bouquet – and we can all see the beauty in a well-structured flower arrangement, but to get the full beauty from one single flower there has to be a lot of artistic flair applied.

In this showcase we are featuring stunning photographs of single flowers, shot by talented and creative photographers, using both macro and close-up photography techniques and lenses, the single flowers are either photographed from a different angle, or with natural added elements such as raindrops or insects, or with a colourful or highly contrasting backdrop to capture out attention – even what we would generally overlook as just pesky weeds can have the beauty brought out of them by a skilled photographer!

One-Pic-Post: Firework Waterfall

Today I bring you a truly beautiful photograph of fireworks. Here are the photographer’s comments:

Did I mention how much I love long exposure? Because I really love long exposure. Looks just like a waterfall with all the smoke from previous fireworks!

The timing had to be perfect for this shot – it is extremely well done!
