Hello, guys!

As the title of the thread suggests, I have a new project - to take pictures for an ice hockey club in my town.

To give you a perspective, here is the link for the site. As you can see there, it's an indoor sport and involves a lot of contact.

It is more of a hobby for me, rather than a task, since I am looking to broaden my horizons and learn new stuff.

I don't have much experience when it comes to sports photography, so am looking for help here.

Technical, non technical, I am all ears, guys! :)

I am looking forward to your replies.

Thank you and have a good day! :)

Hi - I personnaly take photos (Hobby) of my Rugby Team - another contact Team Sport.
I find that the pics that get the best results (popular) are the Close up shots with facial expressions.
I pick a few Players I know are more involved with contact than others and "follow" them around to get that contact Close up facial Expression shot.
My 2 Cents worth. Technically etc. I would look at getting the shutterspeed correct (for Rugby I try to use 1/1000 to 1/2000) which means you Need a wide aperature and use your ISO to get the shot. Rather have it noisy than blurred ;-)

Here a sample. I am still learning and practice helps :-) I am looking for the season to really kick off in the next few weeks to get some shots.
