Push and Shove

"Pierre-Edouard Bellemare #78 of the Philadelphia Flyers lays at the bottom of a scrum between teammates and Toronto Maple Leafs players during the second period at Wells Fargo Center on January 19, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania."

Hockey is a fast sport. One, if not, the quickest in my opinion.

Take that fast sport and slow it down to one picture every couple of seconds. That's what the best hockey photographers are doing when shooting the sport on strobes.

I've always been interested in hockey my entire life. From playing in the street to on the television screen with video games, I am up to speed on the game. However, I am really behind the curve on shooting on strobes.

Instead of letting the shutter click at 13 frames a second during a great moment, I am now limited to one picture every few seconds. This takes patience and knowing when to make the exposure.

I love a challenge. So when I come away with a perfectly layered moment, it helps my confidence throughout the rest of the game.
