In the newsgathering business, photographers must shoot in all types of lighting conditions, and often have only moments to capture the best possible shot. It requires skill and experience and knowing photography and lenses like the back of your hand. In this “Master Glass” series, Toronto Star photographers reveal how they do it: the settings, the angles, the lenses, the approach.

Here, photographer Steve Russell crams in a ton of tips this week on how he shoots NHL hockey, and how it can apply to an arena near you.
