Hi members,

The level 2 assignment this month is Hadouken Photography which seems to me is basically 2 or more people pantomiming an action shot and freezing that action.

Here is a link to Hadouken images (https://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&site=imghp&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1280&bih=939&q=Hadouken+Photography&oq=Hadouken+Photography&gs_l=img.3..0j0i24.2243.2243.0.3994. . to give those who have never heard of it a better idea.
here's a link to a Video done by digitalRev Tv to inspire you further. How to do "Hadouken" Photography - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paqe3pQIiv0)

Ok then - Who will post first

I guess it's only fitting that I post first since I suggested it. One of the reasons I suggested it is because you have to go out an make the image. You can't just stumble upon it while you are out for a walk. I was hoping to challenge everyone to get out and create the image. Imagine it in your mind and make it happen.

Here is my first attempt with my son and a friend. I have another idea in mind that I hope I can make happen in the not too distant future.

I played around with it this evening. The light was way too low, so I could not get my camera to speed. This is just a practice (mostly to see how my actresses would do) and by no means the final product

I like the play in your take AT - nice!

Sort of a copy of what's been done so far but here's mine.
(I have another idea coming)

Awesome AT and Marko! See, level two should be a bit more of a challenge. I hope others will jump in and try it out too... come on, gang!

Nicely done, everyone! AT, I think the slower shutter speed actually worked out well.

Going out shooting with some photographer friends tomorrow night--maybe I can recruit them...

We had a lot of fun shooting this, which made up for the photo itself...

Excellent, mbrager. This is awesome, people! Getting out and making it happen. Great work!

Glad to see we had a bunch of people participate this time around. I really liked that in this challenge you had to go out and make it happen rather than just get lucky walking by the "right" scene. Here's my other idea that I mentioned in my first post. Waited until the last day but I still made it! :)

Well done Iggy.

Those guys must be your brothers, they look just like you.:laughing:

I didnt attempt this challenge as I didnt have any willing models. I didnt consider selfies. Great thinking outside the equilateral parallelogram.

Nicely thought out and captured!
