Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best photos showing shadows on people in this photo contest made possible by our friends at Spider Holster. Spider Camera Holster designs and manufactures the most innovative camera carrying solutions. We develop free upper body and "carry & shoot from the hip" camera holster solutions for all photographers. Also, this contest could have not been done without the collaboration of friend, professional photographer and guest judge David Beckstead. David was named “The Top 10 Wedding Photographers in the World” by American Photo magazine - March 2007 David is truly a mountain man at heart! He has traveled to over 80 countries and almost every state in the US. He has hiked thousands of miles of backcountry, including above the base camp of Mt. Everest. He was one of the first registered trackers for Arizona Search and Rescue. He worked for the US Forest Service for 12 summers as a Hotshot firefighter fighting fires around the US and Canada, all the while carrying a Nikon SLR with a 50 mm 1.8 lens. David is a fine art watercolor painter and lover of all things artistic.
