    I have to shoot a high school team's hockey league this weekend, but the lighting in the facility is terrible. i have a nikon D80 and a pretty standard external flash. my lense is Nikon 17-55 mm f/2.8
    Any tips or suggestions??

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Raise the ISO until you can get faster shutter speeds. Blurry hockey photos are terrible...although some motion blur in the right spots can be OK.

    Hopefully the lighting will at least be fairly even around the rink. Find an exposure that works for you and lock it in (use manual mode). Or at least dial in the EC that works for you. All the white ice & boards etc can really fool a camera's meter and give you under exposed shots.
