My Shadow And More Shadows

When i got married, thats when I always heard the saying: Me and my shadow. During the first year of our marriage, we decided to adopt a young puppy from the shelter and she definitely became a part of our family since then! Our dog is full of love, she love to be around us and play with us all the time. Most of the time, when we are around the house or in the yard, or dog follow us all around and checking us out what we are doing. When we go to the kitchen, she will be there. When we go to the bedroom, she will be there. That is why my husband always say: Me and my shadow, and refer our dog as his shadow.

Normally, a shadow is a silhouette reflection of you when a light particularly hit one side of you [or an object] and transmit your detailed figure on the opposite side of the lighting. Shadow is never constant, it keeps on changing depending on how you position yourself, the object, or the lighting. One of the most commonly used lighting for producing shadow is the sun, thats why shadow is pretty common especially outside. You can see shadows of people, trees, buildings, or pretty much anything!

There are times that i like to photograph shadows. I had photograph of my shadow in the sun and shadows of my hands and made some interesting figures out of my hands. There are some really interesting ways you can do very creative with shadows and make it an art form!

Outside The Box Photography

One of my passion in life is photography. Looking back at my photography history, i had my share of old technology cameras using 110 film cameras, 35mm film cameras, etc. Not to mention having to develop and processs all those photos inorder to see which photos to keep and which ones to toss. And you have all these negatives and pictures to store in boxes and albums!

Photography has changed a lot these days, you hardly see anymore film camera anymore, its widely digital. The most powerful cameras have state-of-the-art lenses and high resolutions capability. But what is powerful cameras without the skills of the photographer?

Photography is a great way to preserve and capture memories at it happens, more like point and shot. But theres also the creative side of photography, where you think outside the box, and be creative with how you shoot things. Getting creative means breaking the norm, and taking pictures in ways you havent seen before. Creative photography is a great way to keep your creative juices flowing and use your powerful digital camera in a whole new level. I recently bumped into this photography article showcasing some really creative photography works, its fun and entertaining photographs to look at.
