If Looks Could Kill


The action when photographing a derby bout can be awesome. There are some brutal hits, some amazing plays and some kick ass skating. The skaters on the track can wow the crowd with their ability to move around the track at high speeds and put some ferocious hits on each other.

However, besides the action, another great thing you can capture while photographing derby is the reaction. From the stands you may not always see it, but the photos can show some great expressions of pain, frustration, determination and pure joy.
