My first assignment! (finally!)
(Click image for larger version)
Knowing my seat arrangement ahead of time, I decided to try to capture Towel Power - a longstanding Vancouver Canucks (NHL) playoff tradition inadvertently started by the late coach Roger Neilson. I chose this particular photo - taken right after the Canucks scored their first goal of the game - because I got the blurred towel waving I was after and
I caught a pretty cool moment on the jumbotron.
(If you're interested in the story behind it, you can read about it here, here, or here. And definitely look up some youtube clips to see it in action.)
Camera: Nikon D90
Lens & focal length: 18-200mm VR at 18mm
Set-up: I was sitting in the last row of the lower bowl (no one behind me) and right above the entrance to the section (no one in front of me). There was a low concrete wall topped with a railing in front of me. I mounted my camera & GorillaPod to this railing and left it there throughout the game.
