Photo Challenge Light and Shadow

The theme for the January photo challenge is Light and Shadow!

In photography, everything starts with light. And shadows. Because light is always accompanied by shadow. It’s one of the interesting things about photography I think. It shows us two sides of a coin. One cannot live without the other and we need to embrace them both.

For this month’s challenge that’s exactly what you’re going to do. Embrace Light and Shadow and capture them in one frame. Pay attention to the light and go and look for interesting shadows. Enjoy!

Photography Playground’s photo challenge is all about enticing you to pick up your camera and share the beauty you’re creating.

Top 8 Candid Photography Tips for Stunning Photos

We all know how to make a selfie or to pose in front of a landmark. Smile when told to and jump when prompted. And it’s great to have those posed pics from the one and only time you did that awesome hike with your newly found friends. Nothing wrong with that. But having authentic shots from your friends and family while you’re traveling is …….. well I would say even greater.
