    I was commissioned to shoot for a fight down in Tijuana and ended up getting some good shots. Many fighters were from Mexico but the majority were from The U.S.
    Thought I'd share them with the cage bros.
    Let me know you think.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Some great shots, not to keen on the artiness of some of them.

    was that at Cage of Fire?

    No, it was a venue called Primal MMA.

    The "artiness" was requested from the promoter.

    The real fun fights were at Total Combat in Oceanside.

    lol at the bad tats.

    that shit is like job repellent lol, hope the fighting works out for that guy or else it's a life of asking if people want 10w-30 or 10w-40 in their car.

    but yeah the shots are pretty good

    herb looks pretty dis interested as he raises guy's hand

    Camera is a Nikon D70s and D200.

    I used a 50mm prime for dramatic shots, a 70-200 2.4 and a 17-50 2.8.

    no flash.

    I think this one turned out really nice.

    The only thing I would suggest is maybe using a faster shutter speed or something :dunno: I dunno, I don't know much about photography, but some of the shots have a little too much motion blur going on ya know? Also I don't know if that black/white/grey theme is really working on those pictures... I'm not saying it wouldn't work, but maybe trying something else with those pics might look a bit better :dunno:

    I dunno, like I said I know dick all about photography. They turned out really nice though, overally I think they look awesome.

    He fought hard, but got lucky with his striking when he got the dude against the ropes. Good fight though.

    The black guy is the one who shot blood across the ring and got blood on my Triumph shirt.

    Thanks for the input dude. I kinda wanted to avoid the typical MMA style and give it a spin and see what was received well and to see what I liked best.

    The one pure B & W shot was done to look like an old boxing style photo.
