I was helping out one of my mentor’s with a photoshoot and we were doing a shoot on Kendo (a Japanese martial art). I happened to fire the shutter the instant my mentor triggered the flash (via his camera) and this image came out. It was a complete (but wonderful) accident.
please do note that this is not what the martial art is like! it’s just what my camera saw. it is in no way like jousting.
this is also a great example of the idea that while all photographs have a perspective not all of them tell the truth.
