Using Shadows to Set a Photographic MoodJanuary 11, 2015 0 By phoenixgenesis®
My service dog Ray and I were walking past the Sante d’Or Foundation, a pet adoption center in Los Angeles, CA. I stopped when I saw this adorable kitty cat taking his or her late afternoon siesta. I used the diagonal shadows cast by the late afternoon sun to represent the metaphor that although this is a cute cat doing what cats do best (i.e., cat napping), it is a cat that needs a forever home. I kept the photographic frame clean and simple – just the sleeping cat, the aqua blue wall, the white shelf and the shadows. I think the warm color temperature of the setting sun is a nice color contrast to the aquamarine painted wall behind the cat. I shot this photo on my iPhone on November 28, 2014 in LA, CA. It’s important to keep a smart phone handy to capture these simple, yet precious, moments in one’s everyday life.
