We create a photograph as we look for light and shadows. This amazing photo by Akshat Tewari captured both the light and shadows, but also the texture and shapes. Thank-you so much for sharing. When I see a photograph like this it inspires me to not only look at the shape I am photographing, but the shadows at my feet. To look for a photograph where the light touches the shadows…

Recently I was out shooting over the weekend, which is when I saw this. I visited Qutub Minar, Delhi, India hoping to capture some nice architectural shots and so were the others.
It was a bright sunny morning and there was this one guy trying to capture the architectural beauty of the ‘Alai Darwaza’.
The Shadows of the ‘Alai Darwaza’ and its shooter created this magical effect on the textured floor.
Like the three basic elements of any photo are: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO; likewise I feel the three prominant pillars on which this photo stands are:
(i) The shadow of ‘Alai Darwaxa’ – depicting its architectural beauty
(ii) The shadow of ‘The Shooter’ – pointing his lens towards the marvelling architecture
(iii) The ‘Textured Floor’ – embracing the beauty of the shadows
If any of the three basic elements are missing in a photo the picture looses its meaning, likewise if any of these three prominent pillars (subjects) wouldn’t have been there in the picture, the click would have lost its look and feel.
