Take out the lesser Shades first before focusing on the boss.
Use Dark Blast and Dark Spear to deal with the lesser Shades while keeping your camera on the boss during the fight. The boss will mostly attack with a projectile wave that is easy to avoid if you run or dodge to the side.
Defeating the Giant Shade boss.
When you have taken out all the lesser Shades, focus on the boss. Charge Dark Lance and attack the boss from afar while being ready to dodge when it throws out its projectile waves. You can also opt to attack the boss up close, though its melee attacks are harder to avoid than its ranged ones, so you will sustain a bit of damage this way.
Target the boss’ weak point when the attack gauge appears.
After depleting the boss’ health, it will go down on its knees and expose its weak point. Destroy it using Dark Spear before the attack gauge runs out to take out the boss. If you do not do so in time, the boss will recover a bit of its HP which you will need to deplete again.
