Shadow or Light? It's a question!

posted on 16th of october, 2008

Photography is called as the art of light and shadow, as you may all know. However, I do not know whether you have the similar question as I have: whether I shall use shadow more than light in the shot or not? I am still wondering and considering. If you also have any ideas or answer, let's discuss!

These images use light and shadow nicely. I especially like the one with the flags in a row. I have said many times that photos are in the eye of the beholder. What may look good to one may look terrible to someone else. That goes for light, shadows, color, and composition. Photography is very subjective. My photos, when I produce them, are very personal to me and when I release them as "final images" I think they are exactly how I like them no matter what anyone says.
