Ringside: Brandon’s Big Fight
Earlier in Jan, I had an amazing session with an exceptionally talented athlete, Fredericton boxer Brandon Brewer. Saturday, I had the opportunity to watch and photograph him in action. What a great fight! I was shooting ringside right next to the action. Shooting the fight was quite difficult. Lighting was fairly low in terms of photography. This made it difficult to get a decent exposure and still maintain a fast enough shutter speed to freeze the action. Using flash is not an option, so increasing the ISO in the camera was really the only option. Increasing ISO means more noise in the image. I tried to compensate for this in editing by going black and white for most, as I find noise adds a little character in black and white images. Anyways, enough camera nerd talk. Huge congrats to Brandon on an awesome fight and becoming the Canadian Light Middleweight Champion! I hope to be there to capture more of Brandon’s journey and hopefully soon, we can do another shoot with that shiny new belt! Well done Brandon!
