Master Any Lighting Setup With The Help Of set.a.light 3D

8 strobes, 800 feet of extension cords, 500 feet of sync cord to shoot hockey players

Once again we were proudly chosen to be the official photographers for this years Allstate All-Canadians Mentorship Cup in Mississauga. Each year, Canada’s best bantam hockey players are selected to participate in this on-ice and off-ice program. Teams were coached by NHLPA members John Tavares and Taylor Hall with Team Tavares winning 9-8 in a shootout.

The biggest challenge in photographing hockey professionally is in the lighting. To create the same style of lighting as an NHL rink we installed our strobes directly over the ice surface with the help of a lift truck. 8 strobes, 800 feet of extension cords, 500 feet of sync cord and 8 hours later, we were all set. A lot of work is involved in the setup but it is well worth the effort.

I never realized how much work was involved in getting ready to photograph a hockey team. It isn't just a matter of showing up with a camera!

I remember shooting the Women's World Championships in there in 1998 and running lights and cables. No lift, no help. Shot slide film back then too. Solid. Can over the US in OT.
