Shadow-Lighting-Technique-www.decoratingelves.comThe shadowing technique is similar to Silhouetting, but with the spot light in front of plant material that has a tall adjacent wall so that dramatic shadows are created as a back drop. This method of lighting is an excellent choice for young landscapes typical of new construction because it transforms a small plant and a large plain wall into a high drama effect that moves with the wind. Good subjects for Shadowing are plants that have open delicate foliage.

This is a pleasing traditional effect in which the shadow of a tree, water from a fountain, or architectural element is cast against a wall or other surface by strong frontal illumination of the object. This effect can be even more dramatic than silhouetting because the shadow of the object is often greatly magnified.
