Slick Stop-Hockey

This is another industrial/scientific sports photography concept that I have worked on.  This shot shows a hockey player coming in and doing hockey stop.  The speed in which the skater was traveling was great creating a spray effect of the shaved ice off the rink.  The shot was 1/250 of a second, but I had the indoor lights turned off and used a Profoto B2 Location Kit to get the super fast light.  The flash duration was not timed for this shoot because I had to keep changing the light power, but I would have to guess 1/2000 of a sec.  The fast flash duration help stop the high-speed action in its tracks and can offer some cool shots of ordinarily events.
