Shadows as a theme seemed really exciting when I first read about it. Challenging, and I like a challenge. However, I didn't really have time to come up with a good shot for the theme until Christmas day. Went to visit family, and because it wasn't that much fun, I took my camera to keep myself busy. Ended up taking quite a lot of photos, all in M-mode, in B/W (of course the RAWs were still in color) and having a great time.
My uncle and aunt hang their Christmas cards on a string up near the ceiling. A lamp is all I needed to get some shadows. Didn't think about entering this for the On Assignment till today, but it suits perfectly. Hope you like it!
