Post Processing my arse off.

Shot The Great Southern Slam last weekend. Something like 26 bouts of roller derby and almost 4000 shots. Only 2 bouts left to process, but sheeesh. It's all turning into a blur.

Well, 3 days spent at The Great Southern Slam. 26 bouts, 3600 shots of which almost 2000 were processed and uploaded.

I've had a busy week.

Kit used was an E-M5 with 12-40, and E-M1 with 75mm. Also occasionally an 8mm FE.

The only thing I'd look at next time is flash use. Usually they aren't used at local events, but the light in one of the halls was so flat it was very annoying.






The refs, just for a single bout.









Success


And some atmosphere shots


Overdressed Pete.

New skates time.

Pit stop

Expelled from the bout due to too many penalties.

Jamskating entertainment during an emergency evacuation. (Still no idea what caused the evac)

Final bout crowd

Cool shots Martin.

How does Derby work? What's the aim?

Lol, I'll refer to wiki for a good description.

Quote:
Roller derby is a contact sport played by two teams of five members roller skating in the same direction around a track. Game play consists of a series of short matchups ("jams") in which both teams designate a scoring player (the "jammer") who scores points by lapping members of the opposing team. The teams attempt to assist their own jammer while hindering the opposing jammer—in effect, playing both offense and defense simultaneously.
Kinda like rugby, on skates, without a ball, on concrete.

As far as I can judge from some of the people in my Twitter feed, this sport seems quite popular with the LBGTQ community, particularly the L component...

Well worth going to a bout if there's any happening near you. There will be roller derby bouts in most major towns and cities in Australia. Adelaide has 3 or 4 leagues. (Murder City, Adelaide, Light City)

Timeless sport. Pretty much same rules today as the past.
Friday nights in the dorm in 1970 in Colorado. Roller Derby gal matches on tiny black&white 5 inch diagonal Sony TV. Games out of the San Francisco area. Teams mostly from west coast states. It was the bomb. More often than not, no need for marijuana to enjoy the mayhem and hilarity.

Was curious whether any/all of my "tinypic" web site hosted images still exist, and
instead searched my posts for "tiny", which brought me here.

Regardless, I failed to originally note the absurd flat floor skated upon.

Real Roller Derby uses a nicely banked track where 2 to 3 skaters can WHIP a teammate ahead of the pack by a huge burst of speed to eventually win a point.
