Wanted to share my work from Saturday night, I covered Strikeforce for ESPN. The plan was to blow out coverage of the event, since it was our first one, and give it a look that suggested we had multiple shooters. It was a lot of fun planning different angles. The editors also planned out a ZOOM gallery, which was a new thing for our coverage. Just wanted to share, love to hear feedback (positive and negative) on the format, and work. Thanks for looking.

The ZOOM gallery is a little weird for a user at first but the results are awesome. I liked the above the cage shots, was that camera on a remote trigger? The broken nose pic and Fedor's shut eye were my favorites.

Yes, I hung a 16-35 f2.8L II off of the lighting truss and triggered it via pocket wizard. I was pretty happy with it. I do it for boxing, but hadn't done it yet for MMA. I'll be running it again this weekend for HBO in Vegas...hopefully there is a KO...

A technique question: is there a way to minimize the effect of sighting through the cage, or are you limited by the cage material and the lighting angles that might cause reflections off the fencing?

Great shots !!!

I caught the last fight - The victor should be fined for excessive humility. ( j/k )

Sorry...dont remember the names, not a rabid fan, but sure do appreciate the skills.

#11 was my favorite. You can read, "Oh my god this is going to hurt", all over his face. Then 12 and 13 confirm this theory.

It depends on 1) the size of the cage, and 2) your physical distance from it.

Many of the big shows have a catwalk around the cage, and the photographers have to shoot outside of it. This would require a longer lens than if one had direct cageside access. Using a lens such as a 70-200 will cause the fencing to "disappear", but then the issue becomes auto focus vs manual, since the fencing and glare can make AF all but impossible.
