  1. Hi Michael, glad you like it! Unfortunately it’s only available electronically, but you are more than welcome to print your own.

    1. Patrice, first I would set a shutter speed that stops the action / reduces unwanted motion blur of moving objects. I would start around 1/250th and increase as needed to reduce any motion blur. Next, I would open the aperture as wide as possible to allow as must light in as possible around f2.8. Finally, I would boost the ISO to bring everything into correct exposure this will probably be in the range of ISO 800-1600.

      These aren’t exact numbers but that’s the general approach I would take. If there isn’t enough available light you may want to use a hotshoe flash and bounce that off of a wall or ceiling however in a large gym this might not help much.

      Hope this helps!
