I attend boxing class 2 nights a week and my wife does as well. She also does 3 Jiu-Jitsu classes a week. So these are the pics that I am learning to take there. A mix of some MMA as well. Post some of yours up. It has been a learning process for me for sure as I am trying to not use any flash. As always, any help or assistance would be great as well as show yours off.

Thats the professor. He likes to do that. The students are of course trying really hard and he is working with them and watching other students at the same time. So then he turns and poses for the camera too. Kind of a jokester at times.

Your f-stops are all over the map. For instance, in the last one you used f/5 | ISO 6400 where the others are f/2.8 & 3.5? But your shutter speeds are all 1/250, so I'm guessing that you used Tv?
I suggest that you try this: Need an exposure crutch?

Otherwise, they're a pretty good set of images given the conditions that you were working in.

My experience is very limited so take it with a grain of salt. I photographed several of my son's wrestling matches. Your lighting might not be ideal, but it is consistent. Things I did:

-- Shoot RAW - it gives you the greatest control over dynamic range.

--ETTR - Expose To The Right, it opens up(or hides) the shadows beautifully. RAW + ETTR really opens up the DR. It will force you to lower your shutter speeds, but I felt the results justified the drawbacks. You will just have to get better at "predicting" the subjects' movements.

-- Shoot in manual mode, more than likely you have been taking a great deal of shots at every meet/match. Manual mode makes it very easy to PP your work. Your light meter will be going all over the place in any of the auto variations since you are dealing with shadows, light and dark clothing, etc. Your lighting will be the same(consistent), and your exposures will be just about the same for the whole event, which means you will mostly be dealing with cropping.

-- Get a tripod if you can -- it really lets you focus on just capturing the shots.

The different f-stops are due to different sorts of lenses being used. Sometimes its the 24-70/2.8 and othertimes its a 70-200/4 or any other mix of lenses. I dont always take the same kit.

I already shoot manual or tv, raw and tend to shoot to the right some. This is a very very small gym so no room for a tripod on the mats and thr lighting is very incosistent especially with the window up front.
