Interesting read about shooting boxing with film

  1. Hey all,

    I am trying to get tickets to the next Pacquiao-Cotto fight and I stumbled upon this great article about a photgrapher shooting the Ali-Frazier fight in the Philippines. Very exciting to read.

    My favorite excerpt from it:

    The persistent roar of the crowd and the clatter of motor drives had a numbing effect. I lost all sense of time. Reacting more reflexively, it still took me an eternity to reload. Through several attacks, retreats, feints, and clinches, I watched for their faces, tripping the shutter when they charged for my corner

    and the link:

    Great article. I'm glad the author didn't skimp on photography speak. For some reason, photojournalism during the film days is much more exciting to me.
