62 Striking Shadowed Shoots

From Frightening Faceless Captures to Armless Torso Editorials

— January 26, 2012 — Fashion
These shadowed shoots are spooky and glamorous, enticing onlookers with an air of mystery. Many magazines are using a shadow look in editorials, and the end result is always just as gripping as a horror movie scene.

The gallery shows some striking images from editorials like Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar that have used murky shadows to create an ominous look. The Karmen Pedaru shoot for Vogue Paris by the famous Hedi Slimane uses dramatic shadows to convey a cinematic movie-like scene.

From shadowy siren shoots to monochrome campaigns, these captures grip the attention of every reader. Photographers enjoy playing with shadows, as this technique undoubtedly helps create sensuality and mystery in a shoot, which pairs extremely well with today's fashion fads.
