    The lighting is superb. I think the image is really good, it could look less stylized and more authentic of course but I suspect these were creative decisions. Really amazing lighting.

  • Alexander Fechner 5y

    ahhh...hättest du nicht 2 richtige boxer nehmen können?? :-)

    shot ansich ist aber nice...
  • Severin Sadjina 5y

    Nope, war Sinn des Photos exakt diese Beiden abzubilden. War für einen Kalender bei dem es drum ging, dass wir historische Ereignisse ablichten. Dieser Shot hier war gedacht Muhammad Alis Boxkarriere zu verbildlichen.

    Keiner der am Photo beteiligten kannte sich wirklich mit Boxen aus und das zeigt sich im Photo wohl auch. Aber wie gesagt, "realistische Darstellung" war nicht unbedingt oberste Priorität.

    Dennoch besten Dank für's Feedback!

    This is epic and awesome. The only thing that would have made it better is if you could have gotten the knocked out guy to be spitting water for that sweat spray effect! ;-)
  • Severin Sadjina 5y

    Yeah, we tried but didn't work out really. Only thing that happened was that the guy almost spit on my camera and that was pretty much it :D

    Amazing shot! Your setup and planning really worked and the action looks very, very real.
