Laos, Muay Lao

In Laos kick boxing is popular, but mainly practiced in and around Vientiane. In villages far away from the capital still "temple fighters" are common: boys who would like to fight are looking for a trainer, which could be the older brother, the uncle or a friend of the family. Only thing is they know a little bit about Muay Lao. A sandbag for training is fine, but if not handy, a banana tree does the same job. The boxing bouts often take place on Buddhist holidays, where the villagers come together on a countryside festival. A simple improvised boxing ring is all they need, and the young "temple fighters" enter the ring to win 5000 or 6000 Kip, which is less than a Dollar. It is not much, but kick boxing means inevitable betting at the same time. If a fighter wins, at least his family can make some profit with a bet. In villages or small towns near Vientiane the Muay Lao scene is already a bit more professional and better developed. Usually once per week young boxers fight for little price money and for an invitation to join the "big fights" in the big Circus in Vientiane.
Everything Must Go

No, I’m not actually selling my old Nikon EM. It may not work, but it was my grandfather’s camera, and looks great on my shelf thankyouverymuch.
This shot was made using two techniques I have not used until today: Tethered shooting, and blending a composite in Photoshop. This photo was blended from two images, one of my right hand holding the Nikon, and the second of my left hand holding the . I used tethered shooting to be able to see the result on my laptop screen as I shot, so I could adjust my hand positions accordingly.
Important lesson learned when blending like this: Always make sure your lighting matches 100% exactly. If you change position and partially block the light in one shot from the other, you won’t be able to easily blend the images.
