This is a photo taken by teddymb on Flickr. It’s a focus on shadow. It’s a photo of a gecko sitting on a leaf. The angle is from below, looking up at the gecko and its shadow through the leaf. You can see its head, but the rest is shadow.
As explained by the article attached to the string of photos I found, shadows take on more personality, and can sometimes be more important - and loud - than an actual image/object. They almost have a life and form of their own. They give a whole new concept to a figure.
In this photo, you can see the details in the shape of the gecko’s body, whereas in its head you cannot. In the shadow, the color is taken away, and the spaces aren’t “filled”. You kind of almost have to guess what the rest of the gecko looks like, however, you have a good idea of what it may be.
It’s really interesting how shadows can make you think and see things differently. Yasmeen inspired me. :P Here’s the link to the website I found, Mr. Guy, you may be interested: http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/03/01/showcase-of-beautiful-shadow-photography/. I shared it with Yasmeen as well in case she might be interested.
