Excellent stuff. What shutter speed are you setting your camera too for the high speed images?

Great work Scott. Do they let you move around or do you have to stay put? I think you could of shot some more interesting angles in #8 LOL.

Thank You


That's a good one,and yes you can move around but I didn't want to loose my spot it was the only place you could shoot with out being behind a table. I like getting up against the cage.

Do you shoot through the cage? I always wondered how this works. Is there a prefered distance you like to be to eliminate the cage coming into focus?

Yes I shoot through the cage. And on distance it depends on the length I use 80-200 I dont have to get as close as I focus past the cage with my 24-70 I shoot right against the cage and you can focus through the hole in the fence. But to get the best shots you have to be against the cage in a corner.
