Creativity: Shadow Photography

Creating Patterns from Shadows

Looking out for shadows is great fun. Yes and watching your own shadow as you are moving around on a sunny day

Have you noticed on bright sunny days how buildings, railings, trees and lampposts cast shadows on pavements, walls and roads.

Shadow art is a unique form of sculptural art where the 2D shadows cast by a 3D sculpture are essential for the artistic effect.

The Shadows formed by decorative Garden Seats are fascinating.

Try experimenting with your own 3D objects. Be inventive.

Here are shadows cast by a collection of wild flowers. Notice the intricate patterns in the 2D shadows cast on the table surface.

Exploring your environment for inspirational ideas will surprise you.
