In my “other life” as Chairman of my son’s Fencing Club I’m often found wandering around “off piste” trying to capture the action unfolding in front of me. In spite of the fact that fencing generally takes place in dimly lit sports halls and needs to be shot at fast shutter speeds to freeze the action with very limited angles to shoot, occasionally there are some nice shots to be had.
This is where my trusty Nikon D4 really comes into its own allowing me to shoot at previously impossible ISO levels to capture what can be a very explosive sport.
A recent trip to the English Youth Championships in Hertfordshire Sports Village allowed me to capture some of the club’s fencers in action.
To see some more of the action you can visit the TRYB fencing club website which I have designed and continue to manage as well as providing a large proportion of the content.
