| p.1 #1 · IHSA Individual State Wrestling Championships |
Had the opportunity to once again cover the IHSA wrestling championships with a good friend. He runs a one man show wire service in central Illinois - the PhotoNews. The original shot list had 150+ wrestlers - though by Saturday when I came (he had another friend their Thursday/Friday to help) the list was pared down a bit. We had 34 participants in the championship matches.
With the exception of the last two of the series, these are all shot with on camera flash. My current approach to wrestling is high iso (2500 - 6400 depending on the gym), 1/640th - 1/1000th, with on-camera flash set to high speed sync - SB-900 set to -1.0 FEV, HV battery pack. I can get between 5-8 frames in a burst without losing the fill flash with this setup. The loss of working distance with the HSS is not the issue with wrestling as I found it to be with football.
Anyway - here's a few I liked.
NIKON D3S 70 mm f/3.2 1/1000 sec 3200 ISO 0.0 EV
NIKON D3S 190 mm f/3.2 1/1000 sec 3200 ISO 0.0 EV
