This section of the forum is about sharing sports photographs, but there have also been some excellent tutorials and discussions written by some of our highly skilled members and I hope there will be more to come. Rather than make them all sticky (as it will clog the place up) I will link to them from here and make this thread sticky.

I will keep this thread locked to prevent it from becoming untidy. If there is a thread that you think should be included in this list send me a PM.

So I'll walk in, set the shutter speed I want (say 1/320) for wrestling, f/2, ISO1600 and take a shot. I like to shoot a kid in a white outfit like the example I posted so I can see if his uniform blows out.
