    Noah – I love, love, love these shots…great work man…you don’t see much b&w work in the sport and the artistic impression jumps off the screen – keep it up.

    Good shots indeed… heh I like b&w as well for sports shots, should really go back and find some shots to convert. I’ve been tempted a few fights due to poor lighting to convert to B&W as it hides the grain noise level really well in most cases ;) – what was the lighting like for this event?

  3. Thanks Sean. It was an awesome event to attend. Glad you like the photos. Never been to an MMA event so it was a great (and very close) way to experience it.

    Jason, the lighting was good but I shoot with a Nikon D3x which isn’t great at high ISO (shot this at 1600) so making them black and white certainly helped as you suggested.

    Noah, cool – worst I’ve shot is some of the KOTC stuff… ISO 2000 at 1/200… compared with MFC at ISO 500/640 and 1/500 – makes a huge difference! Shooting with a 5D Mark II though so it’s a bit better at the higher noise. Trying to figure how I can get my hands on the 1D Mark IV though. /sigh.
