Shooting for shadow is my favourite way to capture an image at the moment. I love exploring ways to bring out drama in a scene.
I use spot metering, this gives me the most control when exposing my images. It measures only a small area of the scene. I expose for the highlights, this will allow the rest of your image to naturally fade into shadow giving your image depth and dimension.
This is a project I'm doing with a fellow photographer friend. Every month we have a theme and share our findings. Its a great way to keep you accountable and practice what we love and it's so much more fun sharing it with someone else. So don't forget to check her images from last month, she has been taking some amazing milky way pictures. Check out the amazing Jade here.
