    make sure you get more than one angle. and don't let anyone get in your camera's way.....put up those orange cones or police tape. my HS wrestling highlight tape was plagued by those assholes (literally).

    Get close, big aperture (2.8ish), no flash, move around and look for sweeps, take downs, slams and finishes.

    Good luck dude, its not hard.

    alot of tournys take place in poorly lit areas, as someone suggested get a large aperture lens, jack up the iso if needed. i found my shutter speed needed to be ~1/200 or faster to stop motion. put your camera in burst mode and hold down the button while action is happening to have a better chance at capturing that key picture. try to sit matside so no one is crossing infront of you (except those damn refs who always seem to find me)

    iPhone camera.








    Thanks for the advice. I've got a Tamron 28-25 f2.8 that does well in low light situations. I just hope this place isn't lit like a cave.
