Wrestling, Who knew?

As the token late shift sports photographer here at my paper, I must say I have been pleasantly surprised at how much I have enjoyed photographing the wrestling season. Normally I could care less for the sport but as a sports photographer (who is always looking for those peak action moments) it has been a lot of fun. I am finding a lot of success with my off camera lighting set ups and have been adamant in practicing with them. Other sports like football or basketball you may only get two or three opportunities a game to shoot those epic moments but with wrestling, it much more constant. This allows me more time to practice. It is continuous battle. You see the aggression, the pain, the victory and the defeat.
