The winner

My only assignment this evening was to get a standalone shot of the action from a Cheyenne South-Rawlins wrestling match. I walked into the gym to find the lights out with a single light hanging about 10 feet over the mat. My first thought was “sweet, dramatic light.” This eventually ended up being “oh (fudge), I can’t shoot action in this light.” Wrestlers (like hockey players) don’t look up very often, making my job pretty hard since that’s where the main light was. I ended up staying for the entirety of the match ups, but this was the best shot I produced:

Cheyenne Central wrestler Bryce Meredith

I got the opportunity to shoot my first prep athlete of the week sportrait on Tuesday evening. Every week, the paper names an athlete from a local high school, which gives the photo staff a nice opportunity to go all-out on a sportrait. Given that it was my first one, I played it pretty safe and didn’t do anything too experimental out of the gate. It’s a pretty basic three-light setup with two back lights at 45 degree angles from the subject. The key light was shot through a gridded softbox from a 45 degree angle to the right next to the camera. The subject was a pretty nice guy who helped me unload the lights from my truck before the shoot and was extremely patient while I look about 20 minutes to set everything up.
