The use of shadows in photography is an essential aspect of capturing visually interesting and dynamic images. By allowing shadows to naturally fall onto we created depth, texture, and the mood.  The inclusion of shadows added dimensionality to the images, creating a sense of depth that draws you in. We used shadows to accentuate the different texture on his outfit. This helped to highlight the rough and smooth areas of the different textures in the fabric surface. Additionally, adding shadows gave the image a sense of drama or creating a more subdued atmosphere while adding a level of complexity and depth.
