First bull fight picture of today's fight. This was a real fight and not sparring. Also a black and white version. This was a tough shoot because the light was straight at us with a frosty field. I had to spot meter at +1 stop to open up the shadows.
This unusual moment caught the two bulls nose-to-nose, and making eye contact up close. I have never seen quite this kind of shot. Obviously nobody could time this shot either.
I think I like the photo as well in black and white. These extreme lighting conditions cause all sort of color casts that are difficult to control in post processing. These interpretations were done pretty fast. For some reason Blogger puts a cyan cast on the frosty grass. It is probably one of those web-safe color issues.
