Rivermen-Ice Hogs hockey

I don’t cover hockey often. And by not often, I mean Sunday was the first time ever. I don’t think I have even been to a hockey game since I was in middle school. It was also the first time using the Journal Star’s strobe setup in Carver Arena. I’ve used strobes before for basketball, but hockey is entirely different. I had a decent day, but I’m looking forward to shooting more games there before the end of my internship.
