So often with portrait photography people stick to traditional techniques of even lighting, but sometimes it's nice to mix it up a little. These cool portraits all take advantage of harsh lighting and shadows to produce dramatic results reminding us that convention can sometimes be successfully ignored.Photo by Derrick Tyson Photo by Elena Lagaria Photo by The Library of Congress Photo by The Library of Congress Photo by fady habib Photo by Alex Holzknecht Photo by Jelle Photo by Derrick Tyson Photo by vanes_hud Photo by Shazwan Photo by Robby McKee Photo by LMAP Photo by Valeria C★Preisler Photo by cinnamon_girl Photo by Valeria C★Preisler Photo by Diamond Farah Photo by Andrew Mason Photo by Agustín Ruiz Photo by Francisca Ulloa Photo by Alex Campos Photo by Bina Photo by Dar'ya Sip Photo by Procristination Photo by Shawn Chin
That’s quite an intimidating portrait there, Ken. 😉
These kind of images are a lot of fun to create. Here is a self portrait of me.
Great shadow portraits, informative article!
I love playing with light and shadows in my self portraits as well.
