Hard Knocks MMA Calgary 2014

I had the opportunity to attend my first MMA a week ago Friday – I’m not generally a huge fan of watching sports anymore so I went hoping to score some cool pics. In my minds eye I was going to capture the classic glove in the chops, sweat flying, Sports Illustrated shot – haha. Let’s just say, I was plagued by delusions of grandeur!  As well, something I didn’t even think about, was the mesh of the cage interfered with a lot of the pics. There were about 5 professional photographers right up against the cage snapping away with their big fat zooms – haha! I was totally envious!

After going through a bunch of the pics I decided to go with a black and white theme. Mostly I tried to capture the emotion of the fighters.
