i watched my first ice hockey game yesterday and i used the opportunity to take some sports photographs. As a lense, i chose my Tokina 100 mm f2.8 macro, because its the fastest lense i currently own and it has a somewhat sufficient focal length.
The ice hockey game took place in a small local town where they have no ice hockey hall. There weren´t too many spectators and i could stand directly next to the field
All shots were taken at Iso 1600-3200 , f2.8-4.0 and shutter speeds between 1/320s - 1/640s (where i feel that 1/320s is almost to slow).
I developed and cropped the raw files with Canons DPP.
So what do you think about those pictures ?
Personally i think that the Tokina lense performed quite good, although it could be a bit longer and a bit faster (lightwise and AF wise)
I had a bit trouble with the manual white balancing cause i didnt find any setting with a proper white, but maybe thats a problem of underexposure.
Overall i had a lot of fun watching ice hockey and i really can recommend it to anyone who never saw an ice hockey game before.
