Shades and shadows



Lights, shadows and shading are all important components of art, including photography. Review the photos in the St. Petersburg Times, especially those featured in World in a Snap. Examine the photos to see how the idea of shading, shadows and lighting are used for dramatic effect. Select a couple of photos that best represent this and write a brief paragraph expressing your thoughts. Share your story or poem with your class. You also can share your poem or story here on the NIE Blogging Zone.
