Three years ago my neighbour introduced me to the awesomeness of Roller Derby. My local team are Central City Roller Girls who are based in Birmingham.
As a photographer – this is probably one of the hardest sports to shoot. High speed fast action in poorly lit sports halls. This requires fast prime lenses (f2.0 is my choice) and high ISO settings. Its a great challenge to record and get something usable. I use a Canon 1Ds3 Body which has a very accurate autofocus system that just about keeps up with the action!
