Two Years of Instagram

The Power Of Twitter & The Global Brand of Red Bull

Red Bull promoted a video I created, titled "Red Bull Round Up: 2012 - A Year to Remember." It was obviously a huge honor to have Red Bull promote the video, but what I found most interesting is where people were watching the video. Thanks to Vimeo's video analytics program, I was able to see every country the video was viewed in.

Within one month (as of 2-1-13) the video has been watched in 105 countries around the globe.

This statistic speaks volumes for the power of Twitter, and the fact that Red Bull has truly become a global brand. A snapshot of the analytics for the video can seen below:

Ice Hockey Photographs: Camera Settings

Here are some recent images I have taken at various NHL, World Junior, and College Hockey games.  Shooting hockey games (and playing) is one of my biggest passions, but it also took some time to learn which camera settings were best to use.  When I first started out, many of my images ended up coming out exteremly dark and blury.

Hockey is such a fast paced game, and as a photographer you do not have the luxury of bright sunlight that outdoor sports have.  So you will need to adjust your camera settings to make sure your camera is able to handle the speed of the game, and the low light of the indoor arena.  Below I have listed which settings I use when shooting hockey games.

To get best results for Ice Hockey Photographs (or other indoor sports) typical settings should be:

  • Manual Mode (M)
  • Small-medium f-number (f/5.6)
  • Shutter speed 1/500s
  • ISO level 800 - 1600 (go with a higher ISO level if the lighting is poor)
