Cupid Strikes Back

This last weekend I headed up to Indianapolis to once again attend the Naptown Roller Girls event that featured members of the Rebel Legion and 501st. This year the event was called Cupid Strikes Back. They had a “kissing booth” setup as a fundraiser for one of the charities that the Naptown Roller Girls support.

Nashville Roller Girls 4-3 Doubleheader

This past Saturday I was able to make it to the Nashville Roller Girls doubleheader bout. I had a great time as always. I had to shoot at high ISO due to the crappy light, but I didn’t have to use the flash, which I think helped the pictures in some respects.

I seperated out the bouts into two seperate galleries this time, so be sure to check out both of them.


First bout, NRG Brawl Stars

Second bout, NRG All Stars

NRG Scar Wars Derby Bout

This last weekend I headed up to Indianapolis to go to the Naptown Roller Girls Scar Wars bout. One of the photographers at the derby let me use their backdrop for a few shots, and I really appreciated that. I guess that goes to show that people who share an interest such as photography are willing to help out people they have never met before.

This was also one of my first opportunities to shoot with my new Canon 7D body, and I was very pleased. The ability to shoot at higher ISO really made a difference in the indoor derby setting. It was a great weekend, and here are a couple of sample shots.

Final 2009 Bout Derby Pictures

I had a blast at the Nashville Roller Girls bout. The crowd loved R2, especially when he was towing some of the girls around the track. This was their final bout of the season. I only made it to two bouts this year, but plan to try and make a majority of the bouts next season.
