I’ve attended a bunch of field hockey games this fall. It’s a great sport. It has broad worldwide appeal, but no so much in the US. It makes sense I’d shoot some pictures — and make the pictures available to the families and fans of the community…
All the girls on the team are pretty much used to me on the sidelines taking pictures. That’s what makes pictures like this happen…
I’ve shot a lot of pictures at these games. A few of them end up on Facebook, and some end up getting published in the Westport News. But most have stayed locked up in my computer. Until now.
This last week, i’ve gone through them all. I picked the 1200 best. They are all organized by game, and almost all are tagged with the players’ names so they can be searched. Then I went through them again, and again, to put together a slide show for end-of-season banquet. I got the number down to 600 for the slide show, but all 1200 up on my e-commerce site people can search, enjoy, and buy prints if they so choose. (Print sales, by the way, raise money for the Staples Field Hockey Booster Club — to pay for the many things the program does that the school can’t pay for.)
I’ve been watching my daughter grow and play for some years now. She is now a Senior, as well as one of the captains of her amazing team at Staples High School. This will be her final week playing for Staples as her team competes in the State Championships, after winning the prestigious Fairfield County conference championships — and the road to that victory meant ending Darien High School’s 92 games in a row without a loss. She’ll go on… planning on playing club hockey in the winter and spring, then off to play Division 1 hockey next fall. I’m so proud!
So, go to the store site here: store.ronhiner.com, and enjoy. Buy some prints, support the program.
