Side Light / Ray of light

In sidelight or when hit by a ray of light, shadows cast acquire certain significance. Depending on the subject’s nature, the shadow cast can create spatial depth. A ray of light is light that hits a surface from the side. It is ideal to mould contours and surface structures as the shadows highlight the contours.

Depending on the surface, certain structures become visible which can potentially create interesting subjects.
