For the publication these shots were provided in colour as was the brief, though as part of my personal photography folio i liked the feel of these gritty shots after processing them with a cool monotone photoshop action. The challenge in this shoot was most definitely the light availability. I found the best compromise was to set my ISO to 800, open up my lens and utilise some of the slow shutter speeds to capture what the sport is about...Speed.
I can thoroughly that if you get a chance to get along to a Perth Roller Derby event as they seem to be great fun and great action. Check out: http://www.perthrollerderby.com.au/ or http://warollerderby.com.au/
