Photography has many tips and tricks of the trade used both by amateurs and famous photographers - the many uses of light, perspective, darkness, exposure, and many other bits are what makes beautiful pictures. All of that wouldn't come to one unified look without shadows though as they are what gives the image depth or in some cases, changes the view entirely. Also, they're free, they're everywhere, and there's no limit to what you can do with them if you have the know-how.

Take a look at these beautiful photos compiled by Bored Panda to see what we mean. The use of a simple shade has transformed each of them. Some of these shadow photography pieces feature models adorned with the silhouettes of leaves, plants, and flowers, while others see bodies intersected by dark and sometimes seemingly body-hugging lines or pockmarked by light shining through hats and other garments. They're simple, they're clever, and they're beautiful, without a shadow of a doubt.

So, if you are looking for ideas for your next project or just want to check out some very cool photos - scroll down below and be ready to be amazed by the works of these shadow photographers!

Zebra lady would have been better if we didn't see the arm holding the palm frond.
