I know this is a photo sharing section but I didn't know where else to ask.
I need tips from those who can give it, especially credentialed sports photographers. I'd really appreciate any help I can get, though.
Okay, so I might get my credentials to shoot the Cotto-Foreman fight at Yankee Stadium. I'm not nervous about it or anything though I've never done a boxing match before. According to the chief editor sending me to this fight there's a 90% chance I'm going. This would have been my second one had I gone to Dallas for the Pacquiao-Clottey fight but I had to put my family first and couldn't go.
I've shot sports and action in general but not in this scale so I don't know any rules. I know about shooting tight and cropping even tighter but in terms of lighting, what can I use? I've never seen any photographers have flash with them (on camera or off) and I don't think it's allowed. (Is it?) Do I just use a fast lens and a camera with high ISO capabilities? What shutter speed should I use without any strobes? I've been so reliant on strobes that I don't even know what shutter speed is enough to freeze the action.
(And don't bother checking my site found in my sig, guys. I haven't updated that in ages. LOL.)
