Sensei Kenyu Chinen at the Yomitan Dojo

Last Monday I had the opportunity to take some pics of Chinen Sensei in his organization’s Yomitan Dojo which is located inside Murasaki Mura. A beautiful location to get a few new portraits of an Okinawan master.

Images shot with the Pentax 645Z and the 55mm lens. A Profoto B1 strobe with a OCF softbox was used for off camera flash to balance the interior of the dojo with the outdoors.

Video shot with the Sony FS5, Atomos Shogun and Rokinon cine lenses.
