Honour 8 – Part 1

Wow time went so fast! Before I knew it it was time for Honour 8 fight night! Amazing fights throughout the night and I’m happy to cover at ring side again, and I had my partner covering the reverse shots (watch for the JBL initial on the photos for his shots). It was tough to shoot this time as there were only 2 lights at the 2 corners which also doubled as corner lights, and the house lights weren’t on, and there were only a few uplights by the pillars. The skylight helped a little on the earlier fights, but as it got later into the night it was getting a lot tougher to shoot. But I welcome challenges and I’m very glad for the opportunity to shoot another  great Muay Thai event, thank you Razor Promotion.

Shot using Canon 50D, Canon 20D with 18-200mm and 50mm f1.4 and J was using Nikon D90 with 18-105mm. Kudos to him for learning the camera almost on the fly (he’s a Canon user – but he got the chance to borrow the Nikon off his brother so he did).
