Light and shadow are key in photography. You cannot have one without the other, and how light is used in the image set the tone and mood of it. Images with high contrast, and strong shadows can be very dramatic.

Have a look and see if you agree that these shadow images have a certain mystique about them.

I’ll start off with a few of my own images taken on a “shadows” themed photo walk a couple years ago:
