You cannot have a shadow unless you have some light; the brighter the light, the better the shadow. Sometimes it is difficult to tell what the object really looks like just by looking in its shadow, but usually, it will give you a fair idea. The more detailed the shadow, the more clues as to the real object. When the lights are turned off, the shadows disappear, and we are faced with an added problem—stumbling around in the dark.
