The San Jose Barracuda and Manitoba Moose met twice this weekend, splitting the two matchups at SAP Center of their four-game season series on Saturday, Nov. 11, and Sunday, Nov. 12.
After spending most of my time in the press area up in the rafters for the first few games of this young season, I got the chance to take photos for the first time during Saturday's 5-2 win for the Moose, and continued to explore, testing different vantage points around the arena throughout the Barracuda's 4-1 victory on Sunday.
Having never photographed a hockey game prior to this weekend, I can't wait to get back to work in building this new skill set. I love learning to shoot a sport as I also learn how the sport even works. From Acro and Tumbling to Track and now Hockey, every sport has its own intricacies and sticking points that make each unique and provide challenges to newbies like myself.
