    I have experience in close combat photography especially in terrible gym lighting conditions without using flash and have been photographer for grading exercises as well as tournament level. Would be a pleasure to shoot at the event. Can i come earlier to check settings?

    I specialize in action shots like this.

    hi, many thanks for the interest.

    the lighting condition is not that bad, a mixture of artificial lighting plus some window light. iso 800 to 1600 should suffice for freezing the action (and i will be using my v slow kit lens, so those of you w faster optic should be fine).

    i am sort of resident voluntary photographer, and we should be able to negotiate a little regarding keeping the background clean to even pulling the whole mat nearer to the window (must stress, no guarantee, cus its a traditional martial art w strict hierarchy system, and i am no committee member/black belt).

    some example can be found in my photo album in my facebook.

    kyokushin karate bouts are bareknuckle w/o any protective gear. so the sound of knuckle digging into ribs can be pretty staggering!

    will be great if we can share the different shooting style, effect of different settings after the shoot.

    cus for several years, i have been shooting alone.

    my hp is 9362126seven, do sms me (unable to pick up calls at work, sorry) if more info is needed.

    Only during the prize giving if any or when they lift the winner hand.

    latest update:

    more than a few expressed interest in this event, so i reconfirm with my instructor. no worry, all are welcome, jus turn up, walk in.

    fights will be with small gloves (not boxing gloves) and shin pad. reason being its a selection tournament for a bigger fight in sept. must prevent unnecessary injuries to fighters.

    there is no need to confirm your attendance. i will be there from 0945 onwards.

    see you!

    *1000 till 1300 will be grading.
    competition starts 1330.
    grading also can shoot if u ve time and interest, but competition definately more thrilling.

    i think its a joyous occasion, the fighters fought hard, audience cheered loud, and motordrive blasting away in hi-mode.

    many thanks to all fellow photographers for turning up to support.
