Lee Shadow Play

I am my dad. I go, not only for the name but most importantly, for quality. He taught me that every single thing I buy should be worth more than it's price, an investment! This is why I see fashion as an investment. And when we speak of jeans, Lee has always been part of Filipino closets and our every week wear for years.

And as a giveback, Lee Jeans Philippines invites everyone to feel the pulse and rediscover the various experiences of where they live, and capture these moments to share and inspire through Lee Shadow Play Contest.

Lee Shadow Play is an online photography contest that will run until the 31 of August, 2012.

From basics - the shadows formed during sunrise or sunset, to the shadows created by trees, buildings/houses or electricity poles, to shadows formed by your favorite ice cream vendor, shadows of children playing in the street, or even from objects due to non-natural light sources.

Shadow Play encourages participants to play with shadows in their photographs.

Since light is the key to photography, one of the first things most photographers learn about is highlights, midtones, and shadows. All these elements all play a vital role in the craft that spotlights how a subject's shadow can really add something' special to a photograph.

Here are some of my favorite Shadow Play art pieces from JPMAG.com:

Mary Poppins et le Chat botté by Valentina Fontanella

Zebra by Mato Pavlovic

Yin Yang Shadows by Yasmina Baggili
