Where the shadow falls

July 12, 2010

(I shot this in Tribeca, NY)

There is a few things to know about controlling shadows.  The first and most simple is where the shadow is cast is dependent on the angle of where you place the light.  You can see from the above picture that the shadow is cast toward the left of the camera.  In fact, the light was placed on camera right and about 20 to 30 degrees from the position of the camera.
