…. But I do keep trying to capture some good images of hockey players. I have progressed, ever so slightly…. I manage to get the ball in the picture now… And if I’m really lucky I can get a player with the ball…. That is my progression! And I’m pleased by this, since I know nothing about photography…..
Recently at the Hockey Champions Trophy competition at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre, I managed to snap a few shots of the men’s and ladies games. I have to remember I am there to watch the games and not photograph them though, otherwise you miss most of the play.
I realised from looking back over my hockey shots that I definitely have a few favourite types of photo:
1) The Penalty Corner
2) The sideline subs
3) Player Shirts
4) The close up
5) The obligatory selfie
So there you have it…. My next challenge is to get a photo (unblurred!!) of Alex Danson dribbling the ball…. Here’s hoping !!
