I have always been a fan of locker room photos, not because I am a creep, but because it is access. Access to seeing the team off the field in a way that completes the story – in a way that ticket holders can’t see them in. The Calgary Rage have been asking me to shoot some pre game photos in the locker room for awhile now and I finally got some time on Saturday. Here are some of the images of the team before their game against the Lethbridge Steel on Saturday, June 6 (which they won 34-14).
Tech notes: I shot all of these on my Nikon D4s, with a 24-70mm f/2.8. Most are shot at a 4000 ISO at 2.8. I went with black and white because of the variety of distracting colours in the room and not for quality reasons. Everything still looked great colourless and grain with the D4s and could have stayed in colour.
