    So Nov 5-9 I flew to Napanee, Ontario to shoot and run retail print sales at the Canadian National Under-18 Women's Hockey Championship, just got home a few hours ago. It was a really fun time, super long ass days, but I was there with my best friend, who happens to be my ex-gf, who happens to be my editor. Everything was paid for, hotel, plane, meals, about 8 drink each every night :rofl:. Awesome hotel, within 1 min walking distance of the arena, with waffles/bacon/fruit salad/bagels/ everything free for breakfast every day.

    The hockey was surprisingly good, very good. Ontario Red ended up beating Quebec in the final in double overtime, really good game, a bit of an upset too. This was my editor's first event, she did OK.. was a bit overwhelmed at first, but caught on over a few days. I took about 8000 pics over the week, so she was pretty busy.

    The only problem with retail tournaments is that you're basically just going for iso shots. Moms/Dads dont want to buy a shot of their son/daughter and another kid.. so it's lots of boring warm up shots and passes/skating/face-off.. after a few days though everything became saturated and I got to focus a bit more on game action. Anyway, here is a selection of 25 shots.. not necessarily the best, just looked through the raw thumbnails and picked the first 25 I liked. Let me know what ya think.

    i'm a parent and would love to see those pics








    since there's no way my daughter is in them. :o


    but, those are some great shots, great colors and saturation without pushing it too far.

    Everything is 70-200, except for the really wide, which are all 10-20

    I shot some hockey for the first time last weekend and am going to shoot more. I'm curious what ISO you're using. its not showing it in the EXIF viewers I'm using.

    Thanks, it's definitely a shot not seen very often.
