Tigers vs. Canisius Golden Griffins
02.27.2010 Frank Ritter Arena
decided to take our camera to the RIT hockey game Saturday night
to try my hand at capturing some images. It turns out there is
a bit of skill involved with photographing ice hockey. First off
the lighting is a nightmare, and most of my shots came out with
a yellowish tint that needed to be addressed in photoshop. Secondly
there is a lack of light that makes shooting in high ISO a necessity,
and leads to generally noisy images. Third, there are a lot of
players on the ice, so many many photos have some other player
zipping by or obscuring a arm or leg. Then you also need to anticipate
the plays, or else you will have photos of people just standing
around without the puck.
was difficult, but I had a fun time, and shot over 350 photos.
I took some time to load some of the best onto my flickr account,
and a few here too. RIT played Canisius college twice this weekend,
winning the first 8-0, and the second a much closer 5-4. It was
fun to close out the season with the tigers, as they honored their
senior players, and we got to see the presentation of the AHA
trophy for the division 1st place RIT Tigers.
