Hi everyone,

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 :P .
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.

greetings

I'm glad you enjoyed the game! :D It's my favorite sport to watch.

As for your photos, I love #4! That's a pretty cool moment to capture. I also like #1 and #2.


And a quick lesson in hockey lingo:

1. "ice hockey hall" = arena
Was this an outdoor rink? Or just a small arena with no seating?

2. "field" = ice or rink
In the context you used, you could also say you were "at the glass" (referring to the sheets of protective glass).

Hi Starbug,

thanks for your comments and the little lesson on ice hockey terminology :) .
So the game actually took place in an outdoor rink and there wasn´t glass all around the ice ( so thats were i was standing ).

greetings

PS: I will be watching another ice hockey match tomorrow ! :P
