    Thanks for the feedback everyone. I couldn't ignore your advice so I've changed my entry.

    Here's my first assignment entry, just for the record, i think these assignments are great, really got me thinking, I'm usually a bit of an opportunist photographer, but this time i found myself looking at shadows everywhere, great inspiration.


    This pic is of a glass pendant light we have, it has a nice glow but not well defined shadows, so I got one of my high powered bike lights and shone it under the light, a few pics with the (pendant) light off and on, but off gave the best results where shadows were concerned. I like the fact that in parts of the image its hard to tell what is real and what is shadow. I also like how the shadows show the shape of the pendants, but the actual pendant itself doesn't. (am I allowed to big up my own pic? hope that's not against the rules).

    Hi Dan, Villa de Leyva is such a beautiful town, I live just 3 hours away. I'm glad you visited it! You can check some pictures in my Flickr gallery

    Ok y'all, I just want to reiterate how ballsy everyone must be to try to followup the cute penguins. So I went the other-way and tried to make something "scary"


    Enjoy, or be afraid.... of THE SHADOW MAN!!! [8o|]


    :


    This one was fun to make. First off it was shot using Canon 50D + Tokina 12-24 f4 @ 24mm 1/200" f8 ISO-400. Strobed using 1 430ex 1/32 power bare gelled with CalColor 90 Green camera right and the shadow was yours truly using one 580exII 1/8 power bare gelled with Storaro Red behind camera left all triggered with CTR-301p's. It took a few shots to get the shadow in the right place, but it ended up being a fun shot, and luckily my wife was a good sport. In post I added some noise and a darkness gradient to get the tone I wanted in the bottom of the shadow.


    Cheers,


    Dave.

    Great idea for an assignment! Here is one from my archives: Sunrise on the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, June 2003 (scanned from Fuji Velvia slide)
