Date: September 25, 2011

Camera: Nikon D700 (Amazon)
Focal Length: 24mm
Shutter Speed: 1/640 sec
Aperture: f/2.8
ISO/Film: 1000

Note:Taradol Chitmanchaitham captured this photo of famous thai fighter Buakaw Por Pramuk in the Thai Fight 2011 semifinals. The picture captures a great moment of a high flying knee kick to his competitor chest. Great perspective and dramatic lighting captured!

Tip: When shooting indoors at sporting events, a lower aperture is needed to allow more light into the camera. You will often see sports photographers shooting with f/2.8 lenses which can let them increase the shutter speed high enough to capture quick movements, but still allow more light in to properly expose the camera.
