Today’s photo are from one of three minor hockey game in Fort St John on January 26, 2008. This game was the Shoppers Drug Mart team from Fort St John, vs. a Grande Prairie Minor Hockey team. Camera was the Nikon D300 with 80-200 lens ISO 3200 1/400 sec at F3.5 for the shot on the Shoppers Drug Mart Goal. Same camera and lens but 1/400 sec at f2.8, ISO 1600.
The lighting in minor hockey rinks leaves much to be desired with as much as two stops difference from one spot to the next. It doesn’t help that the lights flicker through a range of colors that while the human eye does not see, the camera has no problem picking up.
