Climbing Competition

I covered the NC3 Bouldering Competition at Western Washington University a few weeks ago and had fun layering and trying to capture reactions rather than brute force. The lighting was a bit weird since they had colored spotlights on the climbers for the open finals. Sometimes the colors made the people a sickly shade of green, but other times the spotlights provided the perfect off-camera lighting I needed.Here are some of my favorite pictures from the event.
