This was me tonight, after playing reaction ball, prior to training, and I still had a massive smile on my face two hours later :D
Managed 24 laps in 5 minutes, a personal best so far, and it was just a generally good practice :D

I don’t know about you, but Suzy Hotrod is fucking gorgeous and one of the best roller derby players in WFTDA.
She looks like tank girl personified.

Cuando una patinadora cualquiera en el bootcam dice que en tu país no se sabe cuál es la línea de pivot porque nadie la usa.
When a random skater in the bootcamp says that in your country people don’t know what the pivot line is because nobody uses it.

So I popped along to my first Roller Derby bout yesterday! Safe to say it won’t be my last.
I’ve noticed a lot of local photographers have been dabbling in this over the last year or so, and I thought it might be a good way to test my skills against other people, and see how my style of photography fits.
I’ll admit it was a little tougher than I imagined it to be! I knew that sports photography often requires very specific gear, but I hadn’t really experienced shooting it before. I figured the fast paced action would be similarish to shooting concert photography, and while there was a bit of cross-over, Roller Derby has its own pitfalls.
I’m pleased I got a few usable shots, but I’m sad that it was over so quickly. I had just started learning what I needed to do to get the shots I wanted, when it was suddenly finished. How sad :(
