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.)
