Tonights game was more of the same from a photographer’s perspective:  Shoot warm ups, read through stat sheets, shoot game, go home and process.  It was an unusual 3pm Sunday game so getting everything done early and not working until 2:00 in the morning was refreshing.

The LumberJax lost tonight, and luckily, that was the worst thing that happened.  During warmups, a lacrosse ball nailed the wall right next to my head–and more importantly, right next to my camera.  I was less than two inches from losing $2500 worth of camera gear.  Luke Forget and Bruce Alexander stopped dead in their tracks and were amazed that I didn’t get smashed.

I could stay off of the floor during warm-ups, but getting close to the players and not having to shoot through the glass is too good to pass up.  I bet I wouldn’t feel the same way if my camera body and Canon 70-200mm F2.8L IS lens were destroyed.
