Urban Ninja II

I can’t really say why I designed an Urban Ninja image concept. Partially it’s because I’m enthralled with the new Watchmen movie, partially it’s because I watched Akira Kurosawa’s movie Ran, and finally because I happen to have a Katana sitting on a shelf in my apartment.

 

Lighting: One Sunpak 120J shooting down from upper left (slightly behind Ninja), Sunpak 383 in small Alzo softbox camera left (in front of Ninja), Sunpak 383 in Orbis Ringflash camera right.
