Mentioned I'd post a few more shots from my hockey weekend in my last post. Some nonchecking shots. Well here they are. Any comments and critiques always welcome.
Depending on the rink(there are 5) at the facility I was at there are 4-8 White Lightning 1600s, the 8 strobe set up are diffused. All bounced off of a silver lined ceiling. All set up on the shooters side of the rink, therefors no lights coming at you when shooting.
4-8 ? Are they there permanently? Are they yours?
Excuse the stupid question as all this is quite interesting, how do you trigger the strobes ?
Geoff, now that I'm on my home machine... These are sweet! I really wish I could get a chance to shoot hockey with you, and the WL! (and the D300, but that one might happen by hockey season!)...
i hate to pick any one out (I'm partial to goalie shots...) but I really like 4&5, they are great captures....
How are your sales during summer hockey?
Geoff being a hockey FANATIC I think these shots are AWESOME!!!!!! The last one with the shooter blurred looking over his shoulder at the goalie in focus is F'ING INCREDIBLE!!!!!
Tim, sales don't matter to me as it isn't my company. Well it does matter cause it would be nice for them to make money, although I know they do with the tshirt sales as they do that too. From what I could tell in the 2 days I was there in which there were no sales on Friday there were probably only a few on saturday, but I couldn't tell as Iwas non stop shooting from 7am-7pm. Friday I was the setup crew and booth boy, so I basically hung out and manned the fort.
Just wish the flash duration was a little bit better as to get a little more stopping power.
Tim, just get your kids on a travel team that comes over this way for a tourny. We do get teams from MI every once in a while. Just make sure you let me know so I can make sure I get there and get you a chance to shoot with it.
Thanks Joe, i enjoy when I am shooting hockey especially when working with strobes. I have started to look into investing in some for myself as it will allow me to go and do things on my own.
