Wrestling is a pretty ugly sport, but at the same time, it's beautiful. Putting the brutality of the sport aside, the way the light glints off the sweat on the wrestlers or the tense muscles and movements make for great photos. This past weekend, I shot two wrestling meets at Ohio University, and it was the first time I had even watched wrestling, let alone, shot it. I ended up loving it, and I think it's one of my favorite sports to photograph. It's kind of like baseball, not much happens, but when something really cool does happen, it's exciting to see it.
I'm excited to keep photographing wrestling because I know I can improve, but here are some of the photos that I took this weekend that I thought were pretty nice:
