Pics are kind of big so I'll hide them under the spoiler tag so it won't take up too much space.

I have a hard time with lighting with this camera when doing action shots. Had problems at UFC event and any night game I went to. But again I never messed with any setting and I don't know how. I have hundreds more at home from each event, but these are the few I have access to while here at work.

Here is a crop of the original Raw file:

What do you mean by speed lights?

Speedlights are the flashes you commonly see on top of people's cameras. People commonly refer to them as speedlights because of their extremely short flash durations often being as short as 1/35,000 of a second.

Pics aren't bad.

What kind of camera are you using?

A setting like this is where a full frame/35mm camera is beneficial. You will want an ISO of probably 1000 (Possibly a little more), and and a shutter duration of 1/500 to 1/1000 of a second (or higher) if you can get away with it. The shutter duration you use will depend on how close you are to the action (Closer requires a shorter shutter duration).

Fast prime lenses with low f stops f1.4-2.0 will help a lot. If you use a good zoom, its lowest f stop will be f2.8 which is also good and should also work well since the UFC events always have very good lighting.

Lastly, I would recommend that you correct your white balance. Your third photo appears to have the most accurate white balance, all of the others are too yellow.

Here are a couple of my most recent MMA pics:

Thanks Kry.

You'll either need to partner up with a newspaper, magazine or work with the people putting the event together to get in.

Think we touched based on this subject before. What you need to do is get media accreditation and tell em you're an admin for MMAFORUM.com looking to cover the event. From there they'll review it and most likely approve of at least two media passes.

1.) You need a website to prove that you can promote and cover the show. This translates to PR and ticket sales $$$.
2.) Be a photographer which you are.

In fact any one of us could do it. If you guys are cool with it I'll hit up any of the shows around your area and see what I can do.

It's time this site gets recognized on the global stage on par with some of the other ones.
