"If you don't have any shadows you're not in the light." Lady Gaga
The play of light and shadow can make or break an image. How well the shadow is utilized determines the effectiveness of the photograph. Photography is all about light. And sometimes the best light casts a shadow. If the shadow is in your way....move, or better yet, make it work for you.
The same can be said in life.
Keep your eye on the light and use the shadows to your advantage.
