Kung Fu Shoot With Shawna


Here’s a couple of images from a shoot with Shawna a couple of weeks ago. She’s post black belt in Kung Fu and I wanted to do something different.

This first image is a multiple flash image. Set up three strobes, put camera on the tripod. 8 sec exposure. Set off first flash, have her move, set off the next flash. Repeat.

Learned you have to block off each strobe so it doesn’t cast light into another strobe’s place or you get transparency. Also I was shooting this with a wide lens and not everything ends up in focus because the sides are further from the lens than the middle. (I was using manual focus).

Then we did some standard Kung Fu pictures.

I’m going to write some kind of WordPress plugin to handle the display of images so they don’t go all over the place like this one.
