Jenni Kukkonen Speed Skater from Finland

I few weeks ago a friend of mine – a speed skater name Jenni Kukkonen – invited me to a practice to take some photos.  They practice at the Olympic Oval at the University of Calgary.  I have shot sports before but usually outside where there is lots of light.  This was tricky because of the very low light.  I had the ISO cranked to about 2500.  I probably could have made it even higher.  The pictures are pretty grainy but nonetheless it was great having a chance to try my skills in this type of environment.
