I had two rolls of 35mm film, 36 exposures each, and was using a borrowed camera. Never having shot a fencing tournament before, I didn’t have much clue as to what was best to capture. I knew I couldn’t use a flash, so I’d have to be steady. Also had to expect the pictures would come out a bit grainy, and they did. What I find interesting is that I can still look at these and identify almost everyone. Here are the best of the photos I got that day.
George Nonumura looks serious.
Actually, I think George is serious.
Michael Marx. Also very serious.
