Thanks for the great advice DH. I would like to be down on the floor next year or in Omaha, and have a lot to learn before then.
Actually, when I'm photographing a match, I don't really enjoy it. I'm looking for angles and trying to antipate the action so I won't miss a good shot, and I can't get into the match itself as a coach or spectator would. It's exciting to be close to the action, but it's much more fun to watch from the stands without a camera.
