No, not that game...
This weekend I had an opportunity to do a little freelancing work. And I got to put a camera back up on my shoulder. Yay! It's been almost a year since I've done any shooting work...so, when I got a phone call asking me if I wanted to pick up a game, I jumped on it. It wasn't anything big, just a local hockey team playing in a tournament.
I had a ball! I was right down at ice level, getting to follow the action. Every once and a while, I would turn around and shoot an interview, or grab a crowd shot. It just felt...right. I was in my element. Where I'm supposed to be. What I'm supposed to be doing. Too bad that isn't my reality anymore.
I did pay a little for the fun, though. Standing on the cement floor for 4 hours was not easy on my lower back. My shoulder was quite stiff Saturday morning. But that didn't stop me from quickly agreeing to do another game Sunday night.
You can take the camera away from the girl, but you can't keep the girl away! ;)
