I love bright, sun filled photos just as much as anyone else. But there is something about photos filled with shadows and light, mood and darkness, that really draws me in.
I find these images to be so soulful, so full of real life and character.
I find that the best time to capture shadows and light are first thing in the morning and in the late evening. Look for the sunlight streaming through the windows, while making sure that all interior lights are turned off.
And there you will find it – the juxtaposition between the light and the dark, coming together so beautifully.
So the next time you find yourself without “perfect” conditions – look for the shadows and the light. You might just capture a story waiting to be told.
