Long Beach Fight Night

August 18, 2010, Long Beach City College

My first foray into the world of sports photography.  A buddy of mine got me in the event as a press photographer so I was covering all 9 matches from the press seats just below the ring.  Only the referee was closer to the fighters than we were! Seeing all the heart pounding action up close was truly an amazing experience …  can’t wait for the next one!

I used the Nikkor 85mm 1.4 lens on my D700 for the entire event.  Shot mostly at ISO 3200 and up @ 400fps.
