    Hey gang, going to be shooting the Rollergirls tonight, for myself, not as a job (Though... they do give out press passes fairly easy. How easy? Basically they say "Anyone photographer with an organization, come to the front desk now" hehe), and I'd like some tips on panning to freeze one person.

    The tickets say assigned seating, but afaik, it's really pretty open, so I can get pretty close to the skaters. If I need some help, I have the SB-600 for some flash, but I'd like to do it with the available light.

    You can see one of last years shots right here. This year, I have a ton more knowledge, and instead of a 3.5 18-55mm I have my 50mm f/1.8.

    I checked out your shots from last year. I hope that you can get some close-ups this time. I love Roller Derby!!!! Good Luck and have fun!

    The problem is the same as that faced by skeet shooters. The same advice applies: practice.

    Indeed, thanks guys. I got off over 500 shots tonight, now I need to download and sort them - but I think I got a few really sweet pans in there! I'll post a few tomorrow :)
