I have practically no experience shooting sports but I had the chance to shoot the Huntington High dream team this evening. (The yellow T-shirts say "Our Dream Team, Your Worst Nightmare". I'll say, the score was 40-96 against Cabell-Midland High) It was fun to try out my 18-200 VR lens on this. Basketball is a lot more difficult than birds. I shot hundreds of shots and got just a handful of decent action shots. I need more experience.
