Wrestling with a Flash

I am on the remote flash kick in the gym, so I used the speedlite again to shoot some wrestling. Positioned the light stand at it's lowest height and pointed the flash into the mat so it was not directly in the wrestlers face but more or less bouncing up and filling in shadows. I liked the results but was upset to find out there was only going to be five matches. Some of the wrestlers had injuries and they just didn't fill in some of the weight classes. Out of the five matches I took some decent shots but nothing really portfolio worthy and this was my last chance this year to get one. The matches featured Gates Chili v. Penfield and was Gates first annual wrestlers alumni night. Here are some of the shots...
