En Garde

There is nothing better than shooting something for the first time.

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to document some fencing action during the USA Fencing Division I National Championships in Richmond, Virginia.

In no way have I ever photographed the sport, so I was excited, and nervous to get south.

With lots of help from one of our freelance editors who fences when not working, I was able to get up to speed quickly on the different types of fencing, as well as, who the Olympians were.

While I only had a couple hours to work, I had a lot of fun and wish I could have spent more time with the Olympians.

One thing I noticed is there is a lot of emotion and a lot of freedom to be creative. This was one of my favorites of the latter despite loving the great jubilation that continually occurred.
