The Boxer

I had an assignment today that I want to share with you guys. Gabriel Del Real is a local boxer that will have his first professional welter weight fight at the Silver Nugget Casino this Tuesday night in Las Vegas. My editor was looking for a portrait for the upcoming story our sports department is writing on him. I decided to break out the new homemade ring light I talked about in my last post. With the assistant help of Chris Jordan, one of the other photographers here at the paper, we added side light strobes from the left and the right to help separate the boxer from the background. Here is the final result. I am digging this new light.


  1. I'm digging the boxer! Must be the stellar lighting...

  2. Fantastic Greener. That's an "ah ha" moment. You guys totally captured it!
