Shade is an element of art.
def. the contrast between light and dark values within an image for creative effect or emphasis.
- Needed to express volume or a sense of three-dimensionality.
- Can often indicate a light source in an image.
I chose this photo because while it also has extreme lighting, it is used in complete contrast. There are virtually no shadows on the model which brighten up the clothes and the choice of colour - red - is the focal point. The lack of shadows is more inviting and commercial friendly as the model has nothing to hide. This is a good advertising strategy as it attracts more buyers and highlights all of the clothes to be sold.
