Cows

I shot this in the heart of Toronto’s financial district on the weekend. The cows are a part of a permanent art installation there. They’re always fun to shoot. In this case I just liked the play of light and shadow. I think many photographers new to street photography fail to take into consideration the way light and shadow can enhance an image. I often look for the light/shadow play first, then hang out and wait for potential subjects to enter my frame. And I’ll often pass over a good subject because the lighting is flat or dull. The not-so-secret secret is to hit the streets early in the day or late in the afternoon, to catch the best light and shadow play. I’m a big fan of long shadows caused by a low hanging sun.
