I couldn't resist the alliteration in the subject. It's been a while since I have posted nut I was inspired by Chris' HS hockey shots last week.

Brent Moran is a 16 year old goalie who plays for the Niagara Ice Dogs in the OHL. He is the only 16 year old goalie in the OHL this season and was selected to be a goalie for Team Ontario in the IIHF World U17 Hockey Tournament. The NetFx Goaltending School put on a special three session training camp for Brent and I was hired to take some photos for the event. Brent and handful of other high end goalies participated. For the third session, NHL Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson was a guest shooter.

The light sucked in the chosen arena so I tried using 2 Elinchrom Quadra lights and Pocket Wizard TT1 and TT5 units and the "hypersync" mode of operation. I experimented with a few different shutter speeds but I was able to sync the strobes to 1/1250s no problem. I wouldn't normally shoot a game this way, but this was a very controlled session. Anyway here are three sample images with the strobe, and shutter, freezing the puck right as the goalie makes the save. All are D3s with 70-200f2.8VRII.
