Light & Shadow

Yesterday afternoon I and a few other people ventured into Newcastle for a little excursion and for once I got a few pictures I’m quite pleased with – it’s amazing what a few tweaks in Photoshop can do to a photo! I was trying to experiment with light and shadow a bit but as I discovered trying to do this in a hurry is not so easy – it would have been nice to take a bit more time over it.

Img 1. Probably my favourite photo of the day – I tried to purposefully place the sun behind the subject’s head to create a sharp silhouette and capture the shadows created by the window on the floor.

Img 2. Here I wanted to capture the shadows and reflections going across the chairs and wall in the empty gallery. It didn’t really work but I like the low-level angle of it.

Img 3. I had to mess around with this one quite a bit and sacrificed some of the foreground detail to enhance the amazing sunrays coming through the clouds.

Overall I took about 50 pics – the above are my ‘serious’ ones, I’ll post a few more ‘lighter’ photos tomorrow if I get time! Please tell me what you think of them 🙂
