In my short visit to the Spanish capital Madrid at the beginning of 2013, I was looking to work on a small photo serie while there. One subject that caught my attention in Madrid was that shadows cast by the sun were very different than what I’m used to in The Netherlands. The shadows are much more defined and the scene has a much higher contrast.
The way the lights and shadows played became my subject for the few short days I stayed there. Having a subject helps to stay focused. Instead of photographing everything in sight, you will only see what you need to complete the serie.
‘The Shadows of Madrid’ was shot on the old Canon 350D + Sigma 30mm F1.4 lens.
