Great image! Your nephews will likely be stoked (probably not a word they would use and I date myself by using it it think )
Very nice. Look at all the cameras in the audience. Ten to one they can't capture the 619.
As well as being a superb image in technical terms, for me it beautifully captures the whole atmosphere of the event. You can feel and hear the noise of the crowd.
Terrific image, Steve. Lots of emotion inside and outside the ring!
Actually, young(ish - I'm 25) ones still use "stoked." But we/they say we're "stoked on ______." Which sounds like a drug reference to me, so I only break this one out (along with lots of other weird words and uses) when I'm working with skiers.
I can't say I like WWE and UFC, but I do like good photos. This one has a great sense of place, drama, and energy.
Agreed. And I know some adults who would give their first born (plus some moonshine) for this image. Great job.This one has a great sense of place, drama, and energy.
Wow! All I can think of to say for such a stunning photo!
Thanks everyone, glad you like it.
This was a really tough shoot. Stuck in a single spot, you had to wait for the shots that was facing you. (and do a little practicing on the one's that were not. ) The light was difficult, with lots of action and low shutter speeds. Also the light was always changing when they put a spot light on and off. (lost alot of shots because i forgot to make changes) ISO's were up in the 1250 to 1600 range, with shutter speed 1/500 at f/2.8. (not quite enough shutter speed for the fast action )
All in all, a learning experience, and came away with a few good shots.
A very neat shot under tough conditions. It gives the "feeling"of a match. I like the crowd being included,
At first I thought that someone had photoshopped his head on an image of my torso. RIGHT, SURE I DID
