I was able to shoot at opening night for the Danbury Whalers. I was fortunate enough to have the D7000's low light capability.

Nikon D7000 & Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 VR.

1/100 f/2.8 ISO 500 175mm


1/160 f/2.8 ISO 500 86mm


1/200 f/2.8 ISO 500 70mm


1/400 f/2.8 ISO 500 170mm

A definite vote for #4 that grabs it all:
"Learn to Skate" + ref's "should-I-Stay-or-should-I-go look" + a good fist fight = Hockey spirit !

Cheers,
Zevi

Nice shots, but I notice they are pretty significantly underexposed. This is common in shooting ice hockey since the camera wants to expose that big expanse of white ice as 18% gray level. Dialing in about +1.5 EV will typically get you close. You can also try center-weighted metering.

Properly exposed, you would need a considerably higher ISO to get the shutter speeds you got -- ISO 1600 or so, I'm guessing. The D7000 should still do a decent job at that ISO.

As Jon suggested, upping the exposure 1.5 makes the white ice and uniforms white. I downloaded the small JPG and in LR3 bumped up the exposure 1.5 and found the noise did not increase much.
Since hockey is such a fast sport don't be afraid of high ISO, crank it up, add positive Exposure composition and get the shutter speed up. That camera is made for it.
That shot #4 tells it all;>)

Thanks guys! I agree that brightening it up will help tremendously. I didn't want to do that because of the high ISO's needed. The D7000 is a big step up from my D40, so I just have to learn its limits.

Hi Joey,

The image will have less noise if you turn up the ISO and get a correct exposure than if you under expose which will increase the noise considerably more.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
