This picture was taken by the way on the walk through the city.. No arranging of the scene, no editing. Canon Ixus 970 with ISO 80, f 10, 1/125 s.
A self-portrait caught at home... Sunset soft light through the door falling on the white board made this cool soft shadows. Taken with Canon Ixus 970 ISO 80, f10, 1/160 s.

This was shot on my Kodak Z915 at f3.7 @ 1/6 sec with an ISO of 200. I used my ceiling fan with all but one light and some lego figures and a Dinobot transformer with a piece of paper as the background and the figures set up on my desk.

I used a canon point and shoot, not sure what it was (i was using my mom's at the time), inside a church, shadow on tile
-James Maloney-Hawkins

It was shot with a 7.1 megapixel Olympus FE-210.
I set up my subject (two marbles on a crinkled sheet of paper) in the direct sunlight. My main motive was to get that lovely shadow that a marble can produce. That is; the point of light in the middle of the shadow.
-Immanuel Smith.

I just came in through the South (if I remember correctly) doors at Grand Central Terminal and found one of the areas closed off to public traffic. No "real" camera in hand - it fell to my LG Dare to capture the light/shadow through the amazing windows. The chandelier was just a bonus!

Girl was walking her dog and stopped to look at the flock of geese behind fence. The sloping hill created a nice long shadow.

This is a shadow of a line of elephants marching across the frame. The idea for this image came from a picture I saw of a line of camels walking through the desert as the sun was setting. I held a flashlight up to a letter opener with the elephants and took the picture from above. I used a Canon Digital Rebel XT, 28-105 lens at 105mm, f/11, 0.6 sec and ISO 400. I enhanced the shadows a bit with curves, exposure, and levels adjustments in Photoshop.

Finally some sunny days in the frozen north! I used my Nikon D40 with the 18-55mm kit lens to capture this shadow. The shutter speed as 1/320s, f/10 and the ISO was 200. Thanks.

I took this picture during spring break this week in Rome. I used my Canon PowerShot SD8710 IS camera. Everything was on auto, so there was no ISO or exposure technique to getting this shot other than to turn the flash off. The statue was in a hallway in the Vatican City Museum right by a window, and a the sun was beginning to set it cast a shadow across it that created the regal and dramatic look that I was trying to capture in the photo.
Seeing the shadow cast across the male statue and on to the wall made me see the person as they would have been, but also as an ominous homage to the fallen empire and what it used to be. The shadow going across the woman made her look innocent and sad. It was as if they were both coming to life underneath the stone facade.
-David Trahan

This was a fun shot to capture. I stood on the edge of a picnic table at the beach
and attempted a balancing yoga pose! ( Tree Pose) Needless to say I got the shot.
I used my Leica D-Lux4.

I needed a really fast shutter speed 'cause the ball was rolling across the floor; if the ball is stationary the little floaty miniballs inside just float to the top and it looks boring, and makes a less interesting shadow.

Using a 10ft ladder with a 500watt halogen "worklight" to provide the shadow, I secured a pool stick elevated about 6" off the pool table to cast the shadow. Then I positioned my wife's hand under the sticks shadow. Voila.. Using Lightroom 3 Beta2, & Adobe Photoshop CS4 I was able to convert to B&W, reduce noise, touch up, and add the vignette effect.

-Michael Talbot

I drew, and cut out a little monster on card stock and then rigged an LED light to illuminate him. It took a really long time to get the shot I wanted because the prolonged exposer meant a blurry picture, which in this case, adds to the effect a little bit

I wanted to do a self-portrait, so for this shot I turned off the lights in my bathroom and stood in front of the tripod, half way through the exposure I flashed an LED flashlight from above my head to give the appearance of coming out from the shadows.

This was one of my first macro shots. Wasn't trying to do much, just capture the subject so that I could get a feel for the lens and the quality. Afterwards, the more I looked at it on a bigger screen the more I liked it. Not the prettiest gastropod shell ever, but I like the combination of translucency and shadow coming from the same subject.
