Photography is an art and also a craft. You learn the basics and then go ahead to explore your creativity. As a photographer, it is important to keep coming up with new concepts, ideas, and elements to give a fresh perspective to your photographs. One element that can always add newness to your photograph is the shadow. We have some of the most amazing shadow photography that we would love to share with you; they have been done by some very creative individuals.

Amazing Camel Shadow Photography

Amazing Shadow Photography

If you have even a slight interest in photography, you must have seen this photograph by George Steinmetz, taken at Wadi Mitan in western Oman. The photograph has been taken from 100 ft of height and it brilliantly captures the herd of camels crossing the Empty Quarter. No wonder, this went on to be a highly shared photograph over the social media.

This image has been capture by Noah Rosenfield at Kruger National Park, South Africa. It is an aerial click that perfectly captured the shadow of a hot air balloon.

Monochrome Shadow Photography

Monochrome Shadow Photography

The concept of this photograph is not anything that we have not seen before. But the reason why we included this photograph here is because of the sharpness of the shadow and the overall photo quality. It is not an easy task to capture shadows that sharp. However, do not confuse this with Black and White photography.

Shadow Photography of Beautiful Woman

The image captures the shadow of ferns on the face of the subject. Even while not being the primary focus of the image, shadows can be a great design element in the photograph.

The photograph was taken on the street of Mexico by Denisse Pohls. Just one tilt and you know how wonderfully the shadow has taken over the picture, making it a great capture.

Conceptual Shadow Photography

The best thing about the photograph is the interesting concept. The shadow plays an important role in the photograph and comes off as the main subject of the photograph.

Wildlife Shadow Photography

Wild Life Shadow Photography

This photograph was captured by Faisal Almalki at London zoo. The frame doesn’t capture the Giraffe completely but the shadow manages to capture what is missing of the subject in the photograph.

Shadow Art Created From Junk

Shadow Art Created From Junk

Another Conceptual photography! British artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster did a wonderful job of arranging a pile of junk in such a way that when light is projected against it, the shadow that is formed is entirely different from that of our perception. A great subject for photography and a great lesson for life.

Stockings Shadow Photography

Photography is about playing with light, but if you manage to play with shadows and play well, you can be sure of a great shot. The shadow in this photograph has been cleverly used and works perfectly for the subject.
