I had the opportunity to go and photograph a professional Hockey match last evening. A big step in my path to becoming a full-time sports shooter. I had never photographed Hockey before, and to be honest I don’t think I had even seen an entire Hockey match before, but I jumped at the chance to go. The fact that Elitserien is the top league in the country and one of the better Hockey leagues in the world certainly didn’t hold me back any.
This week I jumped in and helped out a production that was shooting some completion scenes for a feature film. We were filming outside of town on a very desolate and snow heavy road. The crane is 35 meters up in the air, has two dino lights on it and a very cold electrician. Luckily I didn’t draw the short straw and kept my feet firmly on the ground.
Vacum sealed and mailed to me from the motherland. Maybe I can start a new import export business. Shot it with a 580EX II Speedlight which was placed in an Ezybox Hotshoe kit softbox camera left and high up.
Globen, or as it’s now called Stockholm Globe Arena, sitting in the distance looking like a great big golf ball that crash landed on Earth.
