Instagram Winners - Shadows

As photographers, we normally shoot the light and this week flipped the book with Shadows. Shadows can tell a mystery, paint an object, add to a story, or tell one of its own making creativity key this week. Being a harder subject we've got a few nice entries below that play with the theme nicely.This time with feeling for next week! While shadows can play on emotion we want you to show us the emotion for next weeks challenge. When you take a photo that gives you the unique chance to connect with the viewer, tell a story, and bring out emotion. That’s the goal this week and you can be creative, emotions don’t always mean people. You can use atmosphere for a spooky scene, red to show love, happiness in a cute baby gosling, or sorrow in a cherished memento of someone gone. So get yourselves out and go shoot, just remember to tag us in your shots with feeling.To enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Friday with the tags #PRTV and #PRTV_shadows.

Toby’s Winner: it! Strong shadows, carefully framed, the sun just off the edge - really nice.

Toby’s Honorable Mentions: placement of all lines abstract not typical shadows but a strong image

Roy’s Winner: can play on horror elements and this works well for a grindhouse shot this week with the focus on the shadow casting the story versus the figurines themselves.  

Roy’s Honorable Mentions:’s a nice shot and you gave it room to breathe, using the gate and it’s shadow frames the shot nicely drawing the eye up to your daughter. with shadows and having a butterfly going to the flower is the creativity I was talking about for this week. Using shadows as a creative tool you can add them to a photo if you just think out of the box.
