This was photographed through the arena glass and under poor lighting, using the Leica M9/M-E and 75mm Summarit (see my review here). Not exactly “sports gear” but good enough to get this shot of my daughter.
- f/2.5 | 1/350 sec | ISO 1250
- The DNG file was “pushed” two stops in LR for an “effective” ISO of 5000.
- White balance was manually set during post-processing.
It’s February 9th, 2014.
My wife and I are rushing to get Hockey Girl ready for her early game, and we’re running late.
I notice it’s snowing outside and the light looks magical.
I turn to my wife, and she immediately understands.
She says, “5 minutes”.
I run upstairs to grab the Mamiya, which is already loaded with Kodak Tri-X 400.
Hockey Girl and I go outside, and I shoot a few frames.
This is one of them.
As it turns out…
Hockey Girl goes on to score her first ice hockey goal, ever.
↑Mamiya RZ67, Mamiya 110mm @ f/2.8, and Kodak Tri-X 400.
