It’s pretty awesome seeing these karate students level up! Everyone did a super great job today, and three students came off of their probation and earned their full Shodan ranking.

Regarding the photos, these are straight out of camera JPEGs, ISO 3200, Sony a9, Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 GM, and custom white balances. Aperture ranged from f/2.8 for action shots to f/4 for portraits. Shutter speed was around 1/500 for action and half of that or slower for portraits.
