Today marks the official start of the Texas Stars hockey season! The opening game is tonight with the the Stars taking on the Wolves. I'll be working as a photographer for the team this season and I've been busy the past few weeks covering training camp, team and staff portraits, and pre-season games. It's time to get my own game face on and prepare for a long season of photographing one of the most challenging sports for a photographer. Cards are formatted, ISO is cranked, shutter speed is high, the aperture is wide, servo autofocus enabled, and burst mode is at max. Let's get this party started! Here are a few pre-season highlights.
