Alex Bamford – The Shot I Never Forgot

‘Samurai’ 2009

This was late one night in September 2009, my first test using a light wand that I’d put together from pound shot parts. Standing in a field, with only the moonlight to see by is quite a spiritual experience, and the level of concentration and the smoothness of the moments involved in this shot reminded me of a martial artist practising. I ended up pursuing a different strand, where I walkied through the shot spinning the wand as I went, but I always hankered back over this one.
