Hockey arena setup shot

This is a portable strobist flash setup for lighting a hockey arena. Of course you take a small risk that a puck/stick could damage it, but the risk in any one game is small. I used a simple manfrotto clamp, and made my own "Justin clamp" from a tiny camera tripod bought from a drugstore and a 1/4" bolt mounted through a hole I drilled in the clamp. A superclamp would have been a little more secure but less versatile. I used this setup for the hockey image titled "Panic" in my photostream. Next time I'll rig it with a safety cable and use a suspender strap for the battery pack.
