One of the consistent spectacles at Supanova is the Wrestling put on by Australian Wrestling Federation (AWF). Now I will admit that I am the last person to talk to about this sport. I had no interest in it when I was growing up, even though I had heaps of friends that raved about it. I was skeptical about it being introduced into Supanova years ago, but once I saw it live, in person on the floor... well lets say I can see why it's a crowd pleaser.
So over the years I have attempted to shoot wrestling as a challenge. It's fast, hard to anticipate (when you don't know the sport enough) and full of emotion. Taking some of the lessons learnt shooting a stupid amount of Roller Derby over the last 12 months I approached the ring in Adelaide with more ideas.
Below are some of the shots I took over the weekend in Adelaide. If I lived anywhere near a ring, I would jump at the chance to improve shooting this sport.
Check out AWF, and get to a bout if you live near them. It's totally worth it.
