Boxing match between Dejan Zavec, Slovenia’s best professional boxer against Rodolfo Ezequiel Martinez of Argentina. Dejan Zavec defended his IBF welterweight title with a last-round technical knockout.

As you know I’m specialized in portraiture, so I rarely cover sport events, but since I intensively train Muay Thai, I decided to photograph this boxing spectacle. I’m satisfied with pictures, although they could be better. Photographically I learned few things: ISO at least 3200, preferably 6400. Shutter speed 350 or more. Aperture minimum f/4. Lens 70 – 200mm (under the ring viewpoint). Pictures that you see are taken with 1/250s, f 2,8 and ISO 1600, with Nikon D3 and D300s cameras. I took 2231 pictures. Next Saturday there is a Muay Thai fight in Črnomelj, so I’ll try my settings there.

PS: Please rate. I reckon that ranking of the post is higher when better rates. I’m not sure. Anyway it’s useful info.

  2. Super fotke!
    Zgleda pa, da kljub temu, da je event na najvišjem možnem nivoju, je osvetljeno slabše kot na marsikaterem turnirju državnega prvenstva…glede na to, da si uporabljal 1/250s pa lahko rečem, da si iztržil veliko ostrine! 🙂

    p.s. najbolj so mi všeč fotki v 3. vrstici…

  4. i cannot wait to share with you my sporting event i covered in Transnistria! Very different technically and emotionally…I used a broken lens and broken camera that cannot read light. They are out of focus, dark and poorly exposed. I hope you will rate them as well.
