Well with just 2 more sleeps before the Big Day and I take a few days break I thought I’d post up a couple of photos from a recent photo shoot with a real life ‘Karate Kid’. Well, when I say kid she’s actually 19 years of age so I hope…I mean really hope she doesn’t take offence, what with her being a Black Belt and all that 🙂

In a few days, once all the overindulging has passed I’ll be posting up a walk through of the photo shoot covering the lighting set ups and a couple of the editing techniques too …

There are more ‘keepers’ from the photo shoot that I’m yet to finish working on so I’ll be sure to post some of them up along with a brief background about the subject of the shoot Kheira Degaichia; a 19 year old Black Belt, Instructor and English Champion from West London.

In the mean time if you have any questions / comments then feel free to make use of the comments section below and if there’s any specific to the lighting techniques , and / or editing I’ll make sure I also cover them in the follow on post.

Enjoy 🙂

    Hey glyn,

    I didn’t expect them to be like they are but they are different from the previous. They are clean and more focused on the person while the other had been more on the mood and tradition(in my opinion)! It is like telling a story from the senior of the ancient days to the modern art and style! really astonishing!

    have a nice holiday!

      Happy Christmas to you and yours,
      Glyn 🙂

    Have a great festive season, and take some personal time to recharge 🙂

      @DaveT…Thanks mate; I’ll have the walk through out in a few days, or should I say after the ‘overindulging’ has ceased 🙂

    Just in case she gets mad about the “kid” reference, start practicing your crane kick

      @Tim…Crane Kick??? Now that sounds painful 🙂
