I found these above images throughout my research.

I like how these images really capture the intensity and how truly rough this sport is.

I think the image where the ground is wet and there is water spray in the air, it gives the image a different point of view as well as capturing the intensity of the sport.

I believe the challenges in achieving these shots would be getting the right ISO, which will allow the photographer to shoot at a higher shutter speed, which will be necessary when trying to capture the fast pace of the players in this sport.

1/1000 of a second is what most professionals use to stop motion.

Shooting at night may be an issue as well, a higher F stop may be needed, increasing the ISO to let more light in will help this issue.


ISO:1600  Aperture:f.20   Shutter Speed:1/25
