Charlemont Shads

I have shot many shadow images, some of the shadows are part of the image or the image itself. They can be mysterious, often abstract and can be open to interpretation, and thus more interesting. Many shadows are intentional, achieved with artificial lighting or natural light. In film noir cinema they often employ a heavy use of shadows to add more drama, mystery and danger to the movie. In this series ‘Charlemont Shads’ I was attracted to the shadows from the sun shining through

a large tree. The first session was in November with still many remaining leaves creating patterns on the wall, as the sun was shining through the trees behind the camera position . The second session was the following year in spring time with a total absence of leaves, just the branches. Whilst working with nature I shot these images at a similar time and height but at a different angle which is the difference between obtaining the desired ‘effect’ and not.
