Theme: Shadow and Light
Photography is the recording of patterns of darkness and light. Shadows enhance the relationships of subjects in an image, they give definition and dimension, which compliments the quality of the light values. Photographers have used dramatic shadows and patterns in black and white images and have also explored using ethereal and moody shadows and textures in color photography.
We will be looking for a range of how shadow and light are interpreted by contemporary photographers.
