    Wow! Very well exposed images, especially the ones with the strong lights in the background! Also, several of them capture the "decisive moment" perfectly!

    Thanks.

    About the lighting- this was a televised event, so this venue was very well illuminated; far more than most events I shoot. The down side to this was that I was often shooting into the lights, and they were hot.

    Here's an event I just shot last Friday. It had a full 3 stops less light, and the lights were a blend of florescent and tungsten:

    Plus some of them look like they really, really hurt. Ouch! I think it's a better spectator sport than a profession...:lol:

    Oh no! There's nothing like getting into a ring with someone and seeing where you stand! MMA, boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, submission grappling, they all will serve to tell you more about yourself.

    I love these shots! Did you compensate for the different light sources in camera or in post-processing?

    Also, how are you metering?

    And I'm assuming that you're shooting in manual rather than program, aperture-priority, or shutter-priority?

    I compensated for the mixed light by choosing to balance for the tungsten. Another photographer balanced for florescent, and his skin tone turned out this funky, oversaturated orange-pink. I don't shoot in RAW, so it's imperative that I get my settings right the first time.

    Metering- I shoot few a shots in AV to get a starting point, do a few test shots, tweek the settings, and leave it on M once I've found the proper exposure value.
