Focus

I had another great opportunity to shoot at another Chicago Wolves game on Friday to add to my hockey portfolio.

This time we had seats only 8 rows from the glass, so I was much closer to the action than I have been in the past. I took advantage by shooting more close-ups during the game and have a few keepers to go through and upload next week.

This shot was from just before the opening face-off. Goalies are, umm…, different than the other players on the ice. Growing up playing the game my entire life and coaching high school hockey for 5 years, I’ve picked up on some the idiosyncrasies that make these guys (and gals) want to stand in front of 12 oz. of vulcanized rubber travelling at very high velocities.

So, from a photographer’s standpoint, they’re a good subject to focus on at different stages of the game.

More photos next week

I’d say I have almost a good half dozen or so shots from the game that I’m planning to process and post over the next week, so stay tuned for more if you like this one.

Thanks,
– Kris
