    I took these on Sunday; not from the bright lights of Sin City, but a bingo hall in Bugtussle:

    Thanks guys.

    The lighting- just some tungsten-based lights on the ceiling, nothing special.

    Texas won! I'm glad, because those boys are my best customers.

    Nicely done! On some of them, I wished you had a wider angle to capture more of their bodies, but you've got a great eye for capturing the right moment. Martial arts are NOT easy to do properly and, like I noted in another of your threads, nailing the exposure and color temperature with available, indoor lighting you do incredibly well! Nice captures!

    Thanks.

    I see what you're saying about the crops. I started off shooting with a Tamron 17-50, but had to shoot at iso 3200 to get the speed I need. I decided I'd sacrifice flexibility for quality, so I went on with a prime and iso 1600 instead.

    So, f/2.8 wasn't fast enough? What prime lens did you use?

    Regardless, even with the crop being what it is, you still did a great job composing and capturing the right moment! Like dude in black pants standing over dude in red pants. Great composition and great expression captured!

    Technically I could've gotten away with f/2.8, but I'd rather top off at iso 1600 than 3200. The latter isn't terrible, but I'd rather not make the quality sacrifice if it isn't necessary.

    I'm using a used Sigma 30 f/1.4 I picked up off of CraigsList.
