Here is set of photos from another Frozen Fenway hockey double header yesterday in Boston. The University of Connecticut took on the University of Maine, followed by a matchup between Northeastern University and the University of New Hampshire.
I tried to mix things up and find different pictures, but I have to admit that after shooting two straight weeks of hockey at Fenway every day, with multiple games each day, I am struggling creatively. I think I need a break from hockey.
It’s been a busy, cold, but exciting week shooting hockey at Fenway Park during Frozen Fenway 2014. We’ve had lots of games to cover, which has given us the opportunity to get a good variety of images.
Over the course of the week, I’ve tried to find lots of different looks, not just on game action, but also on those quieter moments before and after the game. I think it’s important to remember that as huge as some of them are, these are just college kids. The chance to play the game they love outdoors in Fenway Park is something very special, and I tried to convey that emotion when possible. During the game, I kept mobile, shooting some periods from down low, some from behind the glass, and some from up high.
I mentioned in my last post that hockey isn’t something I grew up around, but after these several weeks I feel very comfortable shooting the sport. This was a good introduction, and I hope I can have the opportunity to do more with it in the future.
It was also neat to shoot a skate-around with one of the all-time hockey greats, Bobby Orr! I threw a few of those pictures in there as well for the Bruins fans out there.
