P52 {5} - Shadows

I tried killing two birds with one stone this week: P52 shadows and E for the A-Z Challenge.
E is for Elephant.
Like an African Safari. Or Lion King? What do you think? It's like the inverse of this elephant.

And here's my setup:
I played around with Mia's circus toy, 2 foam boards and a flashlight. I noticed that the elephant's shadow was sharpest when the flashlight wasn't pointed directly at it. The shadow was more crisp with the center of the flashlight off to the side. I played around with placement of the flashlight, elephant and foam board until I got tired, considering it was 2am! And it was extremely post processed just for fun, because it was a silly subject anyway.

Come back tomorrow to see letters A, B, C and D!
