Wrestling In Mackey Arena
This is going to be a fun weekend. Three days of college athletics in Mackey Arena all against the arch rival Hoosiers. Mackey is a special place, and this was a great venue for the match against Indiana. Before it all began I went up near where I used to sit for basketball games to make this overall photo. I have always like the way that the arena looks from up here. I thought it was a good start to the match for me.
Photographing Wrestling Again
It has been a while since I last photographed wrestling. I know for sure that I didn’t photograph any last year. It is a challenging sport to photograph for sure. It is even more challenging when you don’t know the first thing about it. In most sports you know enough to anticipate action. I don’t have that here. I just have to always be ready for something to happen. I find that the shots I like the most are these tight shots where you can really see the struggle. This is a tough sport. I always try and remember that my job is to bring people in to where they can’t normally go. By getting in tight I can show just how trying this sport can be.
