Before ordering a couple of dozen shields with the Silver Wolf Wushu logo on them we thought it prudent to see what a camera thought of things. So the idea was to try various combinations of silks and weapons posed with a common background with a 24″ x 24″ street sign version of the logo nearby. Presumably, one would not need the white PVC support framework for a shield during combat. We did suffer through battlefield conditions: it was hot; the sun was bright; the seeds from the Mediterranean-adapted “grasses” kept sticking in my socks; and there were plenty of flying insects. This photo actually features BLACK silks – they are reflecting the sky (even though I am standing in a somewhat shaded place) so they look like the silk is navy blue.
