Hadouken Photo Practice



Practicing for the Hadouken photo event in Gothenburg on Saturday. :-)

Hadouken is the latest photo craze. The idea is to take photos that emulate Hadouken energy (ki) attacks from games such as Street Fighter. It started in Japan, and is now spreading over the world.

I shot this in Halmstad a couple of days ago. Since I was alone at the time, I had to resort to a bit of photo manipulation.

I put the camera on a tripod, and used a remote trigger to take two shots. Compositing them was easy to do in Pixelmator.

Hadouken is even easier to do, because there is no photo manipulation  involved. What you need, is a couple of friends or acquaintances, who like to play.

If you live in or near gothenburg, why not join us on 4 May? Here are links to the G+ event and the Facebook event.
