Down Low: Shots Made From A Low Vantage Point Page 2
Shadows And Form
Our next Picture This! assignment is Shadows and Form. Negative space created by shadows helps define other subjects within the frame. We’re looking for photos with deep shadows that are an important part of the composition, whether it be an abstract, a silhouette, or a scenic.
This photo was made in Fort Point, San Francisco, California. Center-weighted reading off the brighter area in the floor was f/16 at 1⁄60 sec.
