The Singapore Paintball Novice Series 2009 (SPNS 2009) Leg 3 ended with a bang at West Coast Park on 18 October 2009. The action from the 12 teams of 5 pax each was fast and close. TILT, as the official photographers, was in the thick of all the action with 2 photographers.
In this final leg, TILT had also deployed a third pseudo photographer. A camera, triggered by remote, was placed at strategic locations under the bunkers so that we can be in the thick of it all. In addition, we were constantly in the line of fire so as to paint that perfect picture. Our 12 bruises all over our bodies, together with the huge amount of paint splatter all over our 3 cameras in the 8 hours of coverage said it all.
In fact, the marshalls were worried for us and even suggested that in the future, we should be wearing paintball padded clothes so that we can be a little bit more protected. This is our commitment when it comes to sports photography as we believe strongly that for good photographs to come, besides good technical skills together with the ability to anticipate, one of the key criterias will be to stick in the mud together with the athletes and weather the storm.
This wraps up the local action in the paintball community for this year and come 2010, we guarantee that we will be in the thick of it all again. We look forward to SPNS 2010 and hope that this local community will continue to grow!
