Re: K1 and MMA, Boxing, and Strongman/Strongwoman

Here are some images from this past year at MMA, Boxing, and lifting events.

All with the K1, D FA 70-200, 31 and 43 Limiteds, and the 24 Sigma (I recently sold the Sigma and miss it).

Post processed in Photoshop CC, Nik Silver Efx, and Alienskin Exposure.

I look forward to later this winter and spring taking pictures at new events.

Great pics. Really, really nice action shots. Well done. Thanks for sharing. I really like how you processed the sepia tones.

Great action shots. I particularly like how you composed and processed the first image.

Thank you all for the kind words.

I am fortunate to have access to great fights and events. For the fights, I am usually 30-40 above the cage in the rafters. I have a few select spots from where I shoot, but my angle is often dictated by where the fight is taking place.

The K1's dynamic range is particularly helpful since I cannot use a flash, shoot at somewhat high ISO, and have to deal with uneven lighting.

I am usually able to anticipate the shot, but I do wish I had more frames per second for some action sequences.
