Hello All;
I would like some ideas/suggestions about how to take better pictures with my D300 in an exhibit hall type of environment and indoor arena.

I can't seem to upload files to show you a representative of my shooting environment for some reason. The files I'm trying to upload are pretty mall and yet I keep getting a message that the upload failed.

I would consider myself above a beginner but definitely not an expert. I have been the lead photographer for our local FIRST robotics competition for many years and I feel it is a rather difficult environment (Atleast for me) to get the exposure just right.

I understand the basics of exposure but still am missing something because as I said I can't seem to get the exposure right. I use Adobe lightroom to improve many of my images but I'd like to get better results out of the camera.

I have the D300 with the Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-f/5.6 G ED lens and SB-800 Speedlight. I recently purchased a Nikon 50mm f/1.8 lens to experiment with and I haven't had a chance to try it yet at the Robotics Competition but will get a chance tomorrow through Saturday.

If you'd like more information, let me know.

Tim
