incredible Shadowgraphy Art

Monday, May 7, 2012
Shadowgraphy or ombromanie is the art of performing a story or show using images made by hand shadows. It can be called "cinema in silhouette". Shadowgraphy is not to be confused with shadowgraphy associated with radiographs or the broad topic of "shadowgraphs". It should also not be mixed-up with shadow puppetry or shadow play--shadows formed using cutouts, puppets and other articulated figures. Performers of the art are often called a shadowgraphist or shadowgrapher.

I have always wondered how to cross my fingers the right way in order to create a shadow that looks like a dog. Now I know how to create a human face!!! This art is called shadowgraphy or ombromanie. It’s not that difficult to learn, and it looks incredible!
