Not for nuttin – I would be like the guy in the yellow shorts. Boxing is one of the toughest sports for me to shoot – incredibly challenging, that’s why I normally like it – but the lighting was really bad at this event. The boxing ring was in the middle of a reception room with 15 foot ceilings. The ring was 4 feet high and the lights came down around the ring about 3 feet off the ceiling. So every time you tried to shoot you were shooting into the lights – it was a really tough gig. Here’s an example where the light blew out part of the champs face:
