Shadow Hunting (SMASH) 312

Hello everyone! šŸ˜Ž šŸ“·

The 312th Shadow Hunting (SMaSH - Show Me a Shadow) Contest in a row!
One of the oldest contests on the Hive Blockchain. It's been running for almost six years and regularly pays out rewards for awesome shadows. If that's not a matter of trust then what is it?

Outside on a sunny day, or even at night, shadows are everywhere. Getting an amazing shadow is as easy as taking a photo with your camera or mobile device.
Do you find it difficult to share photos of shadows you have captured? Don't be shy, Shadow Hunters is the community for you. This isn't a strict photography competition where the judges look for framing, lighting, contrast, colours, resolution and so on.
You go for a walk, you take pictures of shadows, you post them and you get rewarded. The community rewards every post! Have you seen this anywhere else? It's awesome!

So, are you ready for Shadow Hunting?

If you don't know: the Shadow Hunters community paid out $8801 in rewards last year! $3954 author rewards and $4845 curator rewards! Source.
What you're waiting for?

I don't consider myself a good photographer, I only use my phone for photos. But shadows are everywhere, and if you're up to the challenge, I'm sure you'll catch a great one.

To give you an example of shadow hunting, here are some of my photos.

Microphone on stage Microphone shadow taken at a live performance. Although I almost regularly record bands at live performances, this is the first time I'm posting photos of the shadows. Maybe I will again. :) As you can see, the shadows are on the smoke produced by the smoke machine. As there is also a light show, the colors of the lights are changed.

Basketball court fences As usual, I catch most of the shadows on my walks with Atos. The basketball court was being renovated and movable fences were put up to prevent people from walking on the fresh asphalt. Then they were taken down.

Microphone in the studio Finally, a shadow of the microphone in my studio. The microphone doesn't work anymore, I should have removed it a long time ago, but it's still there, well now that I've photographed its shadow I'll probably remove it :)

That's all for now, thanks for your attention and I hope you'll publish some of your shadow photos :)
