I got a call to shoot the FCIAC State Final game at “The Whale” in New Haven. No pressure! I never photographed a hockey game before so I was like, yes!!! I will do it!! I was so excited to shoot, but the longest lens I had was a 24-105mm. One of my closest friends has a 70-200mm f.2 so I called him up and he said of course I can use it. Thank god for nice friends.For years he had this lens, and I always wanted to try it out. Now was my opportunity. After getting a sense of where to position myself ( thanks youtube and the photographers from sports illustrated ) and a few pointers, I was ready to fire! I hope you enjoy these hockey images, I really enjoyed the game and the fast action. It is a beautiful game to photograph and there is always excitement on the ice. Not bad for a first time right?
