About the Image(s)

Camera: Nikon Z6 (full frame)
Lens: 62mm (24-70 zoom) at f/4
ISO: 6400
Shutter: 1/640s
Post-processing - Just a crop and a slight contrast/colour balance change.

I was at a local Judo club to see if it would be suitable venue for my camera club to visit for a group shoot.
The lighting was not too bright, so I had to push the ISO to 6400, but modern cameras are fine with this.
I liked the look of concentration on the girl's face as she took down a much bigger opponent - and her flowing hair was an added bonus!
The strong colours are 'interesting', and I thought that the L-shaped composition was good.
I don't normally shoot sports, so overall I was pretty pleased with this shot.

Howdy, Brian, Great action shot! Good sharp strong colors. the girl's facial expression and her flowing hair are great. The man is also in motion. Hope you made copies of this image for both of the people. Sounds like a fun idea for a camera club outing.   Posted: 01/16/2022 11:56:56
