Stopping the action of a fast moving subject, like a hockey player, is what we are covering this week in my digital photography class:
Getting a shot like this one is a fairly challenging thing. First let me say that using flash isn’t acceptable. It’s distracting to the players, and just bounces off the glass anyway. So, I am using a 50mm lens here because of the two lens that I have available, it is the one that will let in the most light. Because I am using a fast shutter speed I have set the ISO high and boosted the exposure 2 stops.
Do you have any tips for getting photos under these types of conditions?

I find when I do that I still get a lot of camera shake 😦
Yes, that is certainly an issue. I throw away much more that I keep. At a recent game I shot 800, kept 140, published 22 on the team site.
