Since this blog is new and I’m just now starting to build it up, I’ll go ahead and re-explain the 52-week photography project I’m running for the 2018 year. I can’t believe we’re already coming up on Week 20!

Over the years, I’ve been a participant in many photography projects – a 365-day one back in 2012 (I think I made it half-way through the year), several 52-week ones and others that were specific challenges during a certain period of time. Each one I’ve taken part in has helped me to grow as a photographer and mostly, as an individual. This year, I decided to start one of my own. We decided to call it Project 52, and we will be documenting each week of our lives with a photo as a response to a specific prompt or theme. Each week, I try to change up the themes so that if we did a technical photography related theme one week, I’ll try to do a fun, personal one the following.

If you’re interested in joining us, it’s not too late. You can join our Facebook group here.

This week’s theme is “Shadows” which I consider to be a technical technique in photography to utilize as with all various forms of light. Shadows are not meant to be confused with silhouettes. Shadows occur when an object obstructs the light flow in the image. A silhouette image displays the subject with the light source in the backdrop thereby creating an outline of the subject itself. Shadows are fun to play with in all types of imagery, and I really enjoyed seeing what everyone submitted this week.

The featured photographers’ images are below.
