I address this point about the use of shadows in a photograph because I believe it has been largely ignored in the literature. Shadows are not necessarily to be avoided, and rather I would argue that they should be incorporated if they improve the image. Such is the case, I believe, with “Along Pennsylvania Route 616” (1944). How would this scene look without the shadows? That is the question that you have to ask yourselves. Now playing: “The Falcon Out West” starring Tim Conway and Barbara Hale.
