    Photos from the May 16th Shaun George vs. Chris Byrd fight are now available.

    http://www.ultravista.com/g2/main.php?g2_itemId=25766

    Shot with a D200, 28-70mm f/2.8 AFS - 1/320 & 1/400 @ f/2.8 ISO 800 center-weighted metering.

    The lighting wasn't the greatest, 1/400 was a bit dark but I was able to pull things in through PS CS3.

    When shooting boxing, what is the "optimal" shutter speed & metering (matrix, center, spot)?

    - Brian Gordon vs. Ruslan Provodkinov
    - Ji-Hoon Kim vs. Koba. Gogoladze
    - Shaun George vs. Chris Byrd
    - Orlando Torres vs. Maxim Vlasov
    - Alvaro Morales vs. Jonte Willis
    - Caleb Caldwell vs. Henry Namauu

    Thanks for the feedback. Boxing and MMA are challenging and a ton of fun to shoot.

    Definitely some great looking stuff. I love seeing the sweat and slobber spraying everywhere, it adds the perfect touch.

    Yeah, the sweat makes for a great action photo. Doesn't happen all that much with MMA as it does with boxing.

    It's better in the later rounds when both fighters are are sweaty and have been watered down between rounds.
