    First of all, if I've posted this in the wrong section I apologize, feel free to move this thread if needed.

    Now that thats out of the way, this weekend theres a free beach polo tournament nearby (Miami Beach Polo Cup.) And I'm thinking of heading down to catch some of the action on camera. However, I know nothing of the sport, or how I should shoot it. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks,
    Eddie

    Is your Nikon 70-300G the VR version?

    Even at 300 mm it will be pretty short for shooting a playing field as large as a polo field.

    Try to keep the Sun at your back and shoot the action as it is approaching you so you don't wind up with a bunch of photo's of horse's asses. :lol:

    I'll Bing the basics for you:

    Have fun

    Started today, runs through Sunday.

    Negative, I wasn't even planning on bringing the plastic fantastic out. Thanks for the links though. I'll see what I can do with my 24-70 or my 50 prime.
