In the past couple of years, roller derby has exploded in Sitka!  These girls practice multiple times every week.  And judging by the number of bruises and fractured bones, they take it seriously!  The gals needed some badass shots to put on a poster for their upcoming bout.  We decided on a stark, side-lit portrait with a pool of light on the hardwood floor to represent the derby track.  With a few gymnastics pads against the wall and a strobe set up in the corner of a racquetball court, we were able to get these awesome shots.
