    Great shots. I especially like #5.

    What's the deal with the arm tassels that some of them have tied above their biceps? Is that just for decoration? Tradition?

    The head and arm bands are for good luck.

    when you set the white balance for these......do you read off a sample in the ring or what?

    I set WB to 3030K or somewhere in the ballpark. I think these are @ 2950K. Are you say it's off?

    not at all.....it seems bang on to me.

    You know the lighting for this venue or you carry a colormeter or what?

    Just I didn't have the faintest clue for the K-1 I shot and left it on Auto, the lights *looked* like incandescent but you just can't tell sometimes.

    I shoot RAW, and have shot RAW since completely screwing up a fight in AUTO WB. It was somewhere in the 4500K range and in .jpg.

    RAW is the only way to go, regardless if it adds a few seconds or two to each post-processed image. I would rather have the latitude of post-production correction that the time saved.

    I shoot most boxing and MMA at 2850 to 3030K.
