This was the hardest challenge for me because I am a beginner when it comes to photography and this one really forced me to have to think. I don’t have the best camera in the world for doing photography so here’s a few of the ones I took and let me know what you think!

"Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow"-Swedish Proverb

If you’re a reader of my blog, you know that I have been daily reading in “The Women’s Book of Confidence”. I recently started the section titled “Befriending Fear” and this proverb was listed right underneath it. Seeing as the photo challenge was Shadow this week, I really wanted to try to incorporate this proverb somehow. Last night, I came up with the idea of writing Worry down on a little piece of a paper and trying to see if I could get a huge shadow behind it. It didn’t work quite as I planned, but I tried. Here’s another one I did with my worry paper along with a couple other random pics.

I liked the effect on the wall that there were multiple "worries"
Shadow heart
Ominous looking shadow


  1. I like that idea. To cast a big shadow, a small, bright light with the word close to it might work, especially if the wall the shadow is on is further away. Also if the light is low, like at sunset when the shadows are long, a shadow cast along the ground. It would be really dramatic with cut out letters. Using the one small light as the only light source in a darkened room might make the shadow stronger too.

    It’s a great concept. Taking a good photograph is as much about the idea and the set up as the camera, so it doesn’t have to matter what quality your camera is. I like the multiple worry effect you got too.


    1. At first, I was actually going to cut out each letter in Worry from a magazine using different colors but I couldn’t find my scissors. I since have found them and I think I will continue to try out different things with the concept and see what else I can come up with. Thanks for the ideas!
