    Hi Matt,
    I think it would be a useful skill to be able to from imagination draw projection of a cast shadow of one idealized form on another, but it seems to be a good bit harder than I would have thought. For example I would try the shadow of a sphere on a cone with varying light angle. Lines are easier than curves of course (eg a box projected on a sphere). I’m thinking it would be helpful in terms of deciphering form from shadows in the human figure when shadows are ambiguous in a photo. Is there a formal way of going about this until one gets the hang of it?

    Related question– can you have ‘form light’s with light coming from a point source? I hope this isn’t too theoretical but it seems like it would be a helpful , particularly when drawing from a photo where you can just move your head to get a second vantage point…



    Hi Scott,

    I think I get your questions. I will do my best to answer them in tonight’s podcast.
