Roller Derby

So I went and caught my first ever Roller Derby bout, it was between the Windy City Rollers and Naptown, all I can say is, “I’m addicted”.  I so have to go back, a lot.

These women are amazing, and as a sport is quirky, fast paced and fun to watch.

It took me a little bit to figure it out, but thanks to the assistance of Mimi Furst explaining everything to me I quickly learned where to point my camera.

Now I just need to learn how to use my editing software to remove the annoying photographer from the background of almost every good shot I have…

    Those are some great actions shots. My mother was a Roller Derby Queen in the 1950’s, she used to let us roller skate up and down our hallway which was really long. It was a blast!
