Photo of the Week #187

November 18, 2013

Here’s a nice pic of New York Ranger Chris Kreider teaching stick-handling skills to kids at a community center in the Bronx last Wednesday. He helped launch this year’s Garden of Dreams Foundation Power Players Street Hockey program, an 8-week program for kids at several New York City community centers that provides hockey instruction based on six core values: Commitment, Excellence, Fun, Respect, Responsibility and Teamwork.

I’ve shot in this particular gym many times before, and it’s always dark dark dark! This time around I decided to do something about it by setting up a pair of battery-powered Einstein 640 studio strobes bouncing off the ceiling in opposite corners of the gym. The strobe’s short flash duration and quick recycle time allowed me to capture all the action with a new level of bright crispness I never thought possible in such a dark, cavernous space. Consider this the “after” shot, with plenty of “before” examples shot with regular on-camera flash in this blog post from a few years back. Hard to believe it’s the same gym, isn’t it?

Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, 24-70 f2.8 II lens @ 24mm, f3.5, 1/200th, ISO 800, lit with two Einstein 640 strobes.
