    So you want to be Hockey photographer?

    Tired of shooting waterfalls, flowers, birds and the neighbors ? Try hockey photography--especially that NHL stuff:

    wonderful athletes
    nice venues
    front row seats
    great family game--teaches kids true values about sportsmanship

    oh, don't forget

    insurance--health and equipment
    bandaids
    ALWAYS put a filter on that lens

    Shots from last night's Anaheim Ducks vs San Jose Sharks game:

    Note: the D3 got hit twice by pucks in the game--first time it got slammed to the concrete floor and second time--well you can see. After applying a hammer, screw driver and pipe wrench to my 2-month old $2000 dollar zoom, all is well-except that filter. Why did that camera shop guy talk me 'up' to a stupid rodenstock? next time its a china special. In case you wondering, my face survived this game--but I know other guys who ended up in the emergency room.

    Oh, did I every tell you about being careful about buying used from sports photographers?

    And a nose clip. I don't know if NHL gloves smell as bad as high school guys gloves, but the stench from those gloves can knock you over.

    Not much of a smell issue at HP Pavilion. But my kid played the sport, so I know what a bag of well worn hockey gear can do to freshen up the car on the way back from a game.
