Lighting fun with Karate Black Belt Alysha

Alysha came back into the studio after our chance meeting a couple of weeks ago to play with some great kicks. We decided to try some long exposure, multiple exposure and fog lighting. Alysha is incredibly skilled and has perfect control of her motion so she was an ideal candidate for this lighting.

A shout out to my lighting mentor Sean Allot who showed me so much about lighting that I'm able to experiment like this properly.

Thanks to Stephen Yule for being a most excellent assistant last night.

Here are a few images and a behind the scenes video from last night.

Sparring at Warriors' Boxing and Fitness

I went down to Warriors Boxing and Fitness this morning to shoot some sparring so I can get my timing back for next weekend's show. I wasn't going to go, but I kicked my ass and went down there. I had a chance encounter with Alysha Sopoco and she gave me some great kicking pictures. In addition there were a lot of people at sparring this morning. Thanks to everyone who was out.
