Yes another Samurai shot today. Things have been really busy with me hence I haven't been able to post images up. I was nearly not gonna post anything today but I changed my mind at the last minute. This was mainly because there was hardly any processing involved in the image.

So this is a picture of the lovely Rebecca, Matts girlfriend. This is an image in progress, any ideas on how to improve it? I will put up another variation of this shot sometime this week.

On another note, I watched Superman returns in an IMAX cinema. I thoroughly recommend the film and the IMAX experience. I'm a big superman fan, can't wait for the sequel. Anybody seen it?

Thanx Rebecca for your time during the shoot, it was much appreciated.

Have a blessed week everyone.

Lovely shot. Wouldn't want to get on both their bad sides.... :S
Saw the Superman movie and frankly I thought the trailers and posters were better...though I had recently watched Superman 1 and 2 again (I couldn't wait). A mistake. Though I intend on watching the IMAX version sometime in the future.
sk: Thanx Deji, they are both quite nice actually wink. Interesting......what didn't U like about it? I thot the best summer film I've seen this year

wow that woman is ready to kill!! Nice, I LIKE!
sk: LOL yes quite focused. Incu is that U on Jide's site?
Nice shot ...was it a movie set or just a photo shoot?
sk: thanx dude. Nah just a shoot with friends. I have a habit of hounding my friends and getting them to do shoots for me, so I can improve my portrait photography. I usually shoot them based on something they like or are into, it makes it more interesting.

Here in Nigeria, Superman premiered on the same day as other places. We are really stepping up. I loved it although some parts were a bit slow. Nice shot

I like this, again you captured a very dynamic picture and the perspective is spectacular, I personally prefer the other one of Matt(and *NO* it is NOT because it's of a guy ..... ) as the feeling in it appeals more in that almost shakespearian pose, but this one is great and probably closer to the real subject of Samurai.... Well done yet again

sk: madam thank u very much, U flatter me
Lovely shot mate....love the hard lighting too...though I think a reflector may be useful here on the otherside of your subject.

a very interesting shot indeed! I like the background setting and how her stature compliments the angle of the shot (or vice versa).

and I DOO want to watch Superman... and now that you've praised it so highly, I think I'll watch it in IMAX.
sk: thanx Mia. I have been a big superman fan since I was young so I am a bit biased
