Ice Curling at Burnaby 2012 BC Seniors Games

One of my volunteer photography assignments at the Burnaby 2012 BC Seniors Games was ice curling, back on Wednesday, Aug. 22.

I had never shot curling before, and it proved to be a challenge, as I was not allowed to access the ice during play, but only during warmups. So I ended shooting live action mostly through the glass in the upstairs lounge. I pushed ISO as high as 2500, but even then I was having trouble getting action-stopping shutter speeds in the relatively low light.
