Default some goalie pics from tonight.....

a couple goalie pics from the hockey game i shot tonight.....

i shot in apeture mode wide open at 2.8-bump up the ec to 1.3- that gave me a consistent shutter anywhere from 250 to 500 a sec shutter. tried something different than how i usually shoot in manual. lighting is really poor in rinks, moving the ec up really helped

Excellent shots!! Really crisp and clear. Did you use software to clean them up?

Nice work, I like the 2nd with the puck captured.

Both are slightly under exposed (a common problem in these conditions). If you are not doing so already get into using manual exposure.

Looking forward to seeing some more.

thanks guys. mark, ill try the manual mode more. i have a question though, if i shoot in aperture mode,and bump up the ec , do i lose an f-stop, hence does my shutter get slower from moving the exposure compensation up? louisdelapena i use iphoto to clean up the pics. when i shoot hockey i try to never shoot thru the glass. if you can get bench access or penalty box access. the newer rinks have glass in front of the penalty box area so try the best you can to get down there

You won't lose a f stop as you will still be at f2.8 but to get the correct exposure you will have a slower shutter speed. The only other option is to get a fast prime lens but that will cost quite a bit for the reach you want.

Both are nice and the second is best due to the puck captured in the action. Great timed captures.
