Day 171 – 04/25/11 – Shadow Play

I have a ton of ideas that I want to shoot, but unfortunately all of them require being outside.  Difficult to do at the moment as I’m neither a duck nor a fish.  I’m sure it will stop raining someday.  Right?

In the meantime I know there’s still a nearly infinite universe of things to shoot inside, but I’ve been shooting inside for nearly six months now and am starting to struggle with new ideas.  Enter my lovely wife, who had the idea to do something with dominoes.

The final image isn’t what either of us had in mind when we set out with the bag of little red toys.  We set up a few dominoes, started playing with the light a bit, and here’s the result.  Sunrise – and the resulting shadows – on a city of dominoes.

      Thanks David! I had a devil of a time finding a good light source to make such sharp shadows. The best source at the end of the day was the light on the back of my iPhone!

    LOVE this shot, I love the patterns created both in the domino’s and the shadows. Repetition is such a cool thing in a photo!
