    Did a mini shoot as a favor for a friend for the local MMA gym. Warrior Training Center, Las Vegas, NV. We had about 1-2 min per fighter. Pretty much the fastest pace shoot i've ever done

    Strobist Info: 580ex from cam left behind the fighters with flag to block light from the Warrior Logo (caused a nasty glare), 580ex into a Shoot through umbrella cam right.

    Havent had the time to process just yet, it needs some fill in some areas, some burning in others. These are all SOOC.

    ive been getting mixed criticism from "photographer" on it. I was trying to acheive teh almost signature look of teh UFC portraits.

    do you think i did a decent job recreating it?

    sample of what im talkign about.

    I would have used a reflective umbrella than a shoot through for your main light.

    I'm find with the shoot thru, but would've moved your kicker behind them to create more of a rim light than a side light.
