Hey Mickey

I just wrapped up shooting portraits of a local boxer named Mickey who's turning pro next year. I hung out for his practice, but i wasn't too thrilled with anything that i got, so i tried a few portraits. Mickey was a really nice guy and was much less threatening than he looks in the pictures. I actually though he was so nice, that its hard to actually see him hitting someone. He even hung around after practice and asked me if i need help carrying my equipment. I get to shoot him boxing on Saturday, so well see how that goes. I think we are going to run the first one in the paper, i like the some what mysterious feel that it has to it.

I think the last one is my favorite. Great circle of light on the canvas and perfect placement of the boxer. What was your setup?
