I went through some photos taken last fall to show the importance of light? No – the shadows! The shadows create depth and defines the texture in a subject. Without shadows shapes are non-distinct. Good lighting always helps, but far too many photographers forget just how much a role shadows play in producing a great portrait! Seems there’s been a recent trend in flooding the subject with too much light and sun flare and not enough shadows. For timeless portraiture, choose a photographer who understands the importance of shadows!
