Fight Night

After a busy week, here are a selection of images from the Army Major Units Quarter Finals Boxing. The fight was between 26 Royal Engineers & 1st Battalion The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers.

I arrived early and set up some of my own lights, as with boxing it's very dark, and images can often be very common, so it's a good idea to pop some flash in every so often.

Boxing is a very hard sport to photograph. It's fast, unpredictable and your space to move can often be very restrictive. You will find the referee gets in your way more than you would care, proving tricky when you see a good shot missed within that split second.

The main thing you need for getting boxing right, is your camera handling. You need to set your exposure and focus that suits you best & stick with it. Boxing doesn't allow you time to mess about with your camera, you just have to get in their and shoot, but without getting smacked in the face by bouncing ropes!

Hope you enjoy
