This installment of cardboard photography takes a look at a newer photo angle introduced to cards just a few years ago.

This example of it though is one of my favorites.

The "net cam".

Normally, the net cam shot would show the hind end of the goalie either making a save or letting in a goal. What I like about this photo is that it is taken during the play as it develops in the corner (probably just after he made a save).

Still focusing on the play, he is framed nicely and the background work great with the whole vibe of being "in the moment of the play".

I think shots like these give you a glimse into the game (and the goalie) that television can't.

A great looking card.


  1. yup, beautiful angle. much better than the rear ends. love the way you can see the crowd in the background.

  2. Yeah. I've seen that angle so many times, but this one really caught my eye.

    The crowd, the scoreboard, his face, everything.
