Photo Friday: Kobudo

Once again we have a photo taken on Friday, but not posted until Saturday due to my schedule. I once again shot photos during graduation at my karate dojo, and I rather like this photo of fellow karateka Bob Terry performing a bo (staff) kata called Shushi No Kon Sho.

This covering movement gets one clear of an opponent's weapon

I stuck with my Canon 50mm 1.8 prime lens during the graduation, and this time had an additional challenge of a couple of burned-out lights in the ceiling. After a few tweaks to white balance to several of the photos, though, I was happy. Next time I may camp out on the other side of the dojo, though, as much of the action came a bit close for the lens to capture.

The rest of the set can be found on Flickr.
