I took these on Saturday night:
and I took these the Saturday before:
Pretty good. I like the MMA shots. Glad to see people throwing flying armbars in an actual fight seems like a lot of subs going on there. Good job overall I like them.
I like these! You did a great job man
On the MMA, yeah there was some good action there. In one of the fights the two traded sub attempts a number of times, and the crowd ate it up. I love the Combat Sports, but I'm not a fan of sloppy kickboxing- which most regional MMA matches boil down to- so to see some high level grappling was welcome change.
Great as always, Snaps. :thumbup:
Awesome shots man, really impressive. The boxing ones are so brutal and bloody! I love the backlighting catching the droplets of sweat/spit/blood flying off their heads.
What do you use for lighting? Looks pretty well lit so I'm guessing you have a couple of remote strobes?
Thank you, thank you.
No, I don't use any flash or strobes for fights. The lights were only coming from two directions, and the were VERY bright. It makes for some ok shots, but I didn't particularly care for them, seeing as how I was shooting up into them half of the night.
Well, it looks like you did a good job working around a non ideal situation then
Thanks. I guess you could say I've had worse situations:
This post has some of the best stuff I have ever seen from you Snaps! The strobed shots are just superb moments. The shot of the curly-haired blond guy falling back after that left hand, with the ref looking at him--you totally NAILED it man! Same with the shot of the right hand being delivered in the last frame, between thew two guys each in black headgear.
What kind of ceiling-mounted strobes do you have set up?
These shots are awesome! I really like how you caught the blood/sweat in the boxing ones with the backlighting.
