My first time ever shooting hockey and it was a BLAST! I've had a season ticket here for 4 years and can never get enough hockey. I wish I could shoot every game.

#4 Is the game winning goal after it went into OT and then a shoot-out. I'm keeping my fingers crossed to get the chance to shoot more games before the season is over.

Here's the link to the other 'keepers' that I liked:

Shots look good! Only suggestion for some I saw in the gallery would be to crop tighter. I recently shot your Wranglers here in Victoria against the Salmon Kings. See http://christianjstewa​rt.zenfolio.com/p99301​7505 (external link)

Cheers!

I see what you mean about the tighter crops. I'll pay attention to that next time.


It was definitely a learning experience for me since I've never shot hockey. I didn't edit any of my pics other than the winning goal one and fixing a few horizons.

Things I learned quickly:

1. Trying to follow the puck in lens makes for a dizzying effect.

2. Until the whistle blows there's always a chance to get a shot

3. As the action gets closer to the net, don't forget to zoom back out. (I got half the Condor's goalie in frame during an awesome sprawling save. Still kind of mad about that)

4. Use the camera's FPS ability and shoot shoot shoot.

5. Move quickly away from the boards when you see a check coming... it hurts if you don't get out of the rebound zone fast enough. LOL

I see in your pics you were at a higher shutter speed. I stayed at 500 but next time I'll bump it up a little since the lighting was nice in the Orleans.

Larger shots when showing examples here tend to work better for critiquing shots.

The 2nd one would be real nice larger, the check along the boards and the little girl in purple gasping or screaming or something. I don't even care that the puck is in the shot on that one.

I couldn't remember the max size of allowed pics so I played it safe.

Just today a coworker and I were talking about the pics and we both listed that one as a favorite.

Here's a larger sized one of that one:
