wrestling at the moose lodge

Pro wrestling.  At the local Moose Lodge.  Not necessarily an inviting invitation at first glance, but my husband pointed out that I could take my small camera.  Heck, a challenge is a challenge, right?  It might be interesting.

It was amazing: a wonderfully difficult shoot, pushing the capabilites of both the small sensor Fuji and its not so experienced operator. I ended up having a lot of fun taking a lot of really bad photographs.  But there were some good ones too. Action shots tomorrow (I’m still sorting them), but in low light,  a small sensor is at its best during the rare pauses. Here are three of my favorite quiet moments from a very rambunctious Sunday afternoon down at the Moose Lodge.

Figure studies (and strong pinks) I never expected to find going in;  the camera, as always, defines its own moments.

(The first two shots are straight out of the camera; the third has been cropped.)

    That third picture is just wonderful. It’s worth a few thousand words.

    Thanks! I’m really glad that one came out–I knew if I’d caught it right it was going to be special shot. There’s another one of this young man and his little girl that is going to be OK, too , but it needs a bit more cropping than this one did and I’m trying some different things. It was a sweet moment, and one of these is going to be among my favorite shots of the year.
