24 Apr Roller Derby by Mark Strydom
Mark Strydom was at the C-MAX Roller Derby League event, Skate Wars: Mars Attacks vs Starship Troopers, in Johannesburg last weekend and grabbed these shots.
After taking some ‘correctly’ exposed test shots, Mark found them stripped of the intensity he was going for so opted to push the ISO for a grainy look. He let us know more about his decisions, “Most of the grade was from in-camera white balance. I shot on a long lens so that I could get in on the action. The organizers lit the arena track with tungsten parcams so I tried to use them as much as possible getting a strong backlight with long shadows.”

In case you were wondering, Starship Troopers won.
