A couple of weeks ago, I had the chance to photograph the ONE Fighting Championship: War of the Lions MMA tournament as part of the media. It was an eye-opening experience for me, as it wasn’t just the first time I’d photographed an MMA tournament but also my first time attending one.
I was there to get some shots for my colleagues at Men’s Health Singapore, and also to test the Nikon D4 for my review of it at HardwareZone. It’s a beauty of a camera and performed impeccably in the challenging low-light, fast action situation.
Not to say it was easy, I struggled with locking focus on the fighters through the ring fence and getting a good shot of the action from my assigned position. In the end, I think I did okay, and it was a great learning experience for me.
