Capoeira Luta da Vida

A collegue and friend of mine, Philip, is really into Capoeira. We’ve often talked about me dropping by on a training night to take some images and get aquainted with the art form; so not long ago I packed my kit and went down to their training hall to have a look. I was blown away by the way these guys and gals move and really had to show off some photog moves myself in order to get any shots. Great moves in a not so great location, but the session gave me a feel for how the capoeiristas move and we’ll definitely get something together this summer for another shoot in a more graphic setting.

Btw…Philip is the one doing the “high five” (I’m sure that’s the correct term for the technique :)
