Photo of the Week #208

June 9, 2014

I consider boxing the most difficult sport to photograph, so I was pleased to find this lucky shot amongst my hundreds of photos from Saturday night’s fights at Madison Square Garden. Having trouble pushing my trigger finger a fraction of an inch in the time it takes one of these athletes to throw a punch really makes me appreciate their lightning-quick reflexes. Perhaps these guys would be well-suited to take up boxing photography as a second career?

Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, 400mm f2.8 IS lens @ f3.2, 1/1600th, ISO 6400, heavily cropped.
