The BC Judo Championships were held in Abbotsford, BC on October 18. I had two of my students competing in the tournament and as usual I was there shooting pictures. My club, The Burnaby Judo Club, did fairly well, although at our senior levels, there were a few let downs. Everyone competed hard and I'm looking forward to seeing them again in the November Tournament.

Here are a few shots from the day:

Good action but try shooting from a lower angle and clean up those backgrounds.

Agreed. Also, keep the fstop at 2.8. Might also try getting in tighter. Actually shooting vertical may help you get in tighter when the Judoka's are in mid throw. Shooting tighter will also help blur the background.

I like some of the submission attempts that are in your gallery. They're shot lower and the photos look cleaner over all. Just my Opinion. :)

And the last pic is way cute!

Thanks. Not much you can do with the backgrounds - you have to take what you get. You can't really get rid of the people without a LOT of work. I think that most shots were at 2.8 or 3.2

Appreciate the comments.

I hear ya about dealing with people in the background. Looks like you and your team had a great time! Good luck to your club come the November tournament!
