I went to the DeMotte Boxing Club Friday night and took some photos of the fights. If you get a chance shoot on over to their blog and check it out. Like I said in an earlier post, I had planned on doing some environmental portraits but the time was just not there for that. Since my father is part owner I pretty much have the run of the place, photographically speaking. I hung out and shot all the fights and had a great time. I was sore as hell the next day from crouching down near the apron.
Not unlike the monster truck show boxing poses some challenges. At officially sanctioned events flash is strictly forbidden. This means cranking the ISO so the images get noisy. I am a little light on gear for my DSLR so I don't have the optimum lens for low light, fast action sports but I do what I can. I'm learning and my images are improving. Rock on.
