photoblog image The swordsman illuminated

The swordsman illuminated

Last week I asked people what they would like wedding pictures or samurai, everybody went for samurai................. so heres the first shot. This is Matt, a fellow shutterchancer. For the next week I will put up some shots of him and Rebecca (his lovely lady) for the samurai series. We had actually finished the shoot, when I spotted a ray of light coming through the trees. So I begged him to stand in the light while I fired away. I thought the black and white added something to the shot.
