OK, wrestling is not easy to shoot! It's all arms and legs and butts! LOL!
Then in the "better to ask for forgiveness than permission" part of the day, the only other time I shot wrestling it must have been a pretty casual meet, becasue I guess your NOT supposed to lay down on the mat between two matches in order to get good, down low, action shots! I got tossed from the floor and had to go upstairs with all the regular people! I really need to get a press pass!

I tried a few wider shots for action, but ended up liking the more detailed aspects instead...Let me know what you think(be gentle!

All shot with D7000, 70-200/2.8 and ISO 3200

1. Really liked his legs up in the air with no hands on the mat!
