Have you the odd photograph of yourself or else a trio, quartet or more of your friends' shadows, cast on the ground with a life of their own like Peter Pan's playful shadow?
Having taken photos of people’s shadows myself, I was inspired by André Kertész’s work with shadows. His photograph entitled “The Eiffel Tower, Paris 1929” speaks volumes about his capacity to visualize his end piece, the acute attention he paid to his surrounding environment and his skill as a photographer to forge the best possible working relationship with light.
These LomoKinographers shine light on the art of the shadow in their artistic movies that serve as outlines of events memorable enough to vividly recollect with a simple shadow as reference.
In “Shadow Traffic” LomoKinographer tracymoore captures “shadows from the traffic passing by on the soon to be destroyed Seattle Viaduct”. The narrow white spaces in between windows seem as the ideal location for the procession of the shadows of cars, evoking memories of toy train sets in motion.
In this production the shadows are mostly cast by people. The LomoKinographer shifts focus from legs to torsos. The sprawl of leaves from overhanging tree branches appear in differing levels of grey in this black and white film. One can imagine the ‘mission’ these shadows were on for the LomoKino Workshop, the fun had from the excited hand movements and playful forming of hand shadow creatures!
We ask, what time of the day do you like best to shoot shadows?
Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.

Beijing is a ready-made template for panoramic shots. Tourist baits like The Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace stretch for miles. Those who walk from end to end will have more to say. For instance, that the ground goes on to infinity. Or that they have never been so tired and amazed all at once.
Photography as a visual art requires a certain kind of presentation. Whether you’re promoting it to be up on a gallery wall, an agency website, a physical book or your own artist page, the finest details matter.
It's hip to be square, but with the Diana+ Splitzer you can make your shots way cooler. Like, have you ever imagined taking a picture of your friend's head in the clouds? Or putting two unlikely subjects in one photo, such as a puppy's face with your uncle's feet?
Armed with disposable cameras, a number of people affected by homelessness in London trooped out in the streets and captured life from their individual perspectives. That was in July; now, 13 photographs have been selected via public vote and will be featured on the upcoming calendar by Cafe Art, an initiative that "[showcases] artwork created by people affected by homelessness or are socially vulnerable."

When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.
Their movement is as hard to predict as the weather. One minute they're on a standstill, the next they horde the sky with their brisk wings. This is precisely why people need binoculars and camouflage suits just to trace the track of birds. Similarly for photographers, these creatures present a friendly challenge. To capture the perfect stance, on land as in mid-air, is a reward.
