I shot my first Ice Hockey game last night and let me just say – “WOW, that’s a tough game to shoot!”
I met up with Mr. Morris Molina, the Aeros Staff Photographer and he was great! He showed me around and gave me numerous pointers. I shot all night with the D3s with the ISO from 800 to 1200. This gave me a shutter speed range from 100 to approximately 1250.
When the Toyota Center is set up for ice hockey, there are only two small (approximately 6″ x 5″) holes in which to shoot through! Not to mention the fact that you have to worry about the puck flying through the hole.
Thanks again to Mr. Molina and the Houston Aeros! Oh yeah, the home team (Aeros) came out with a 3-1 victory!
