Earlier this year I was over in Florida, USA filming a couple of classes for KelbyOne that saw us initially shooting in a Kick Boxing Gym.

A whole series of pictures came from the day shooting which were then retouched for the second class however the picture below is one that I didn’t include; no reason other than it didn’t make it into the number of pictures we worked on otherwise there would have been too many, so I thought I’d share it with you here.

Pictured here is Joe Bamboo Wissmann…


The picture below gives you an idea of the location we were working in so to create this picture I used my Invisible Black Background technique and from the lighting pattern, if you saw last weeks video you’ll see that I went for Cross Lighting.


Just incase you haven’t seen the videos showing how to do both the Invisible Black Background and the Cross Lighting, I’ve included them for you below…

If you’re a member of KelbyOne then you can check out both the Photography Class and the Retouching Class that this one picture came from.

Catch you next time,
