Here is a few pictures I took last week in a Hockey Bantam B tournament
where my son was playing. I took these pictures with a Sigma lens 70-200mm
f/2.8 that I rent with my Canon Rebel XTI. I'm in a process to decide wich
telephoto zoom I will buy.

It's my first experience in this area and so far happy with the results
knowing that I need more experience. I was wondering if we can expect even
more picture quality with more experience. Do you have tips to give in order
for me to have better results.

Even with a f/2.8, I was working between ISO 800 and 1600 to have a shutter
speed of at least 1/250 at 2.8. I found these type of ISO very noisy and
I found desapointing the contrast between the ice an the player. The players
were looking dark.

thanks

Pjibe -

I like the second shot. good work

1/250 is too slow for bantams -- maybe just OK for peewees. It's OK for goalie shots and faceoffs, but a forward carrying the puck moves too fast.

you can do very well with the sigma 70-200. With that lens, your limiting factor at hockey will be the focussing system in the camera (it was hockey that drove me from 20D to 1D).

Difficult lighting, but underexposure is your problem
