When I saw this week’s #52Snapshots of Life photo challenge theme of “Shadow“, I thought this one should be easy! Then the sun went in for several days. Luckily I had snapped just a couple photos last Sunday when the sun was out bright, but I was frustrated trying to do it on our deck where the dogs were hanging out, because as I lamented to my hubby “Why do we have so much furniture on our deck? It’s getting in the way of my photos!”. As it turns out, the sun finally came back out brightly yesterday and I got a few more shots.
I ended up selecting a photo from the deck though, because the ones I took yesterday weren’t too exciting. I liked this photo of Luke because of the different reflections playing across his shadow, and the stretching of the shadow making his already long legs look much longer. I did edit the photo just a bit; I decreased the gamma and increased the contrast using my old camera software, to make the shadow stand out just a bit more.
BTW, this photo was taken with my new Nikon D5500. I’m starting to get the hang of it, and I am pleased with the clarity I’m getting on a lot of my photos!
