So last night I got the opportunity to get above the hockey rink and shoot some shots from 50-75ft above the teams as they played. It was AWESOME!!!! Of course, being up that high and walking along the rafters was a bit unnerving at first…but you quickly get used to the swaying walkways and dipping plywood that was the floor. :eek:

We made sure we had nothing in our pocket that could fall down and hit a fan in the stands or a player on the ice. Our camera neck straps were securely fastened and we snapped pictures for about 10 minutes up there. It was definitely a memorable occasion for me!

I tried to get things centered but due to the support beams it was impossible to center myself on my mark. Other than some cropping, I didn't do too much PP on the pics other than levels adjustment, dodge and burning, and resizing. I know...my PP sucks but I'm working on that over the next month and watching tons of tutorials.

I remember watching Ouzas when he was with the University of New Brunswick.
