I shouldn't call it a "hockey shoot." That makes it sound like I was hired to be there. This was just me in the stands taking pictures with a new lens, a Canon 70-200 L 2.8 on a Canon 50D. This was a womens game, NCAA Division I. http://www.flickr.com/photos/46866714@N08/sets/72157623132288089/ I'd never shot hockey before last weekend, but I kind of knew the basics as far as what settings I'd need to use. The arena has cycling lights, but I thought with continuous shooting that wouldn't be a problem. I did a custom white balance off the ice during pregame warm-ups and that worked pretty well. I shot at 2.8, of course, and ISO 1000 at 1/640. I did have to use post-processing to intensify the whites and I know that can quickly blow out the highlights, but I was more interested in how the jerseys looked rather than the ice. I couldn't use the camera's exposure bracketing because you can't do continuous shooting when you're using that feature. I have a couple more weeks before the next home series, so any tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated. But for my first time, I'm happy with these and looking forward to getting better at this. I love photography and I love hockey, so doing both at the same time is a bonus.
