Brick City Hockey

Last weekend I shot RIT’s Homecoming Hockey game for the school’s magazine. I was really happy with what I came back with. I feel like I have made huge strides in my sports work in the past two months. Mostly with getting around the venue, having more variety in subject and composition in my shots, taking chances in shooting with different lenses, having the patience to set up a shot and wait for it, and other things that I see which have made a real difference in my takes. Of course there are several more things I need to work on. For instance, I made a few basic mistakes with exposure, as a result of not remembering how my camera was set. As well as picking a terrible postion for the overtime and missing the shots I really needed of RIT’s winning goal.

Here are a few of the shots I really liked:
