This was the second of two freelance assignments I received from the Hanna Herald at the end of March in 2014. I had never photographed figure skating before so I didn’t realize how cold I’d be. The few times I’ve been in arenas I’ve either been under the heat lamps on the spectator side or on the ice working up a sweat. Never been around the back before where there is no glass (important for photo quality), but also no heaters. Brrrr.
