My first NHL game was Nashville Predators Vs. Chicago Blackhawks! I do not remember the year but I would say I was around 11 years old.
We went to watch a former Waterloo Black Hawks player Mark Eaton who was playing for the Predators!!
When was your first NHL game? Who was playing? If you have not been to one yet who would you like to go watch?
When I first started taking photos at the Black Hawks game for myself I had been trying to shoot with my parents manual focus film camera. I used more film than I got good pictures.
I saved enough money to purchase the original Canon Rebel or the 300D before the 2005/2006 season.
I started teaching myself how to shoot with this new camera. The basic stuff was the same but there were so many new features on this camera than that of what was on my parents old camera. I researched and learned through trial and error pretty much as I went to a small school that didn’t offer any photo classes and I was still too young for college classes.
The best shots that year was more of the still shots. Every once in a while I would get lucky and a fast action one would turn out.
