The 2012 USA National Boxing Championships gave me a great opportunity to combine still images, audio and video in one package for the first time. I was just learning how to do sports photography, and boxing is particularly challenging. But I was nonetheless pleased with the outcome, as was The Denver Post, which published the piece in March 2012. It's a condensed chronicle of one bout; the Post provided context with a text block. I used MovieMaker 6 on Windows 7 to build the show, as my students will be working on PCs, with a lean software budget. The Post also used additional video and photos from me to accompany follow-up stories on the championships.
