I had an opportunity to work with model Alex Jade in Nevada City recently. Below are a few of my favorites. Images shot with the Fujifilm X-T3 and the 56 f1.2 and 35mm f1.4 lenses. Some were shot with natural light plus a reflector and some were shot using a Godex on camera flash.
After watching Sean Tucker talk about Shadows, I wanted to see how I have used shadows in my street photography this year. Not just really high contract images, but actual shadows to highlight a subject. I love using very high contract and shadows whenever possible, but the small towns I shoot in, just are not heavy in shaded areas. Overall, I find it easier to crush the blacks and make an image very contrasty, and I will do a blog entry for that soon.
Below are a few of the images I found this year, that use shadow. As I reviewed my work, I can see more shadows being used later in the year, as my skills improved.
While you can find me on social media, I have decided to give my own blog a try. I will attempt to update you with new content once a week.
