Jiu Jitsu Flow.
An artistic approach to a jiu jitsu tournament.
For the second set of my photographs from the Onnit Invitational 4, I wanted to convey the feeling of jiu jitsu. In ensuring that I am capturing moments that represent the tournament as a whole, I made sure to take time in creating images that captured the essence of the jiu jitsu martial arts. I decided to editing these in black & white to make them a little more timeless and engaging for the viewer. As I continue to progress my photography, I am beginning to understand the importance and challenge of manipulating light and shadow as opposed to simply "taking a picture". Capturing the ebb and flow of these athletes was a great challenge I am happy to take on again. It was an honor to photograph such amazing artists expressing themselves in what they love. Cheers!
