Get a Grip - wrestling

I don't get a lot of opportunity to cover wrestling for this newspaper. A majority of the meets are away, and the interest in wrestling is a lot less than it is for basketball, so that puts our priority for our readers on the basketball games. For this meet I was able to spend a bit of time at the event. I set up a pair of SB-800 strobes set to 1/4 power in the bleachers and triggered them with Pocket Wizard radio slaves, allowing me to get pretty good light without creating harsh shadows of a on-camera flash.
