    How'd you go about getting a press pass, and who are you providing the pictures to?

    I'd love to eventually get some for the rockets or texans. Hell, even the dynamo would be cool

    white balance is way off, and i would have bumped the ISO alot more to get freezing action or set up some flashes in the stands or rafters. or even around teh area.

    I figured out the name of the guy who was in charge of media access went up to him said
    "Hi, I am Anthony with BJJphotos.com I e-mailed you a couple times about how I should go about getting a press pass, but you never replied."
    him:"you did?"
    "yes"
    him:"Okay lets go get you one."

    I kinda like this angle. You need the 14mm though. When I shot at one of these I set the white balance on one of the ad signs.
