Martial arts with tonfa

Indoor action photography without flash can be a challenge. You will need a camera that handles high ISO well and a fast lens. Here I’ve used a Canon 5D Mark II with a 24-70 f/2.8L.


To freeze action, use a fast shutter speed. This means higher ISO and wide aperture. Higher ISO will result in more noise. It’s not necessarily a problem if your photos are for small format and screen only.


You don’t always have to reveal everything. Leave something to the viewer’s imagination.

Not all action has to be frozen and sharp. Slow down the shutterspeed just enough to add some movement to the photo.
