Hi, my first post on nikonians, hoping to get some good advice.

I have been asked by my son's Karate club to do a trial, they have had a few "Pro's" come in to take photo's, and have been dissapointed to the point that there was not a single useable photo to be used in posters or brochures, or even as momento's for the kids when graded.

So I have no idea where to start, they have white uniforms, the building interior is cream, and I have never done anything like this.

My Gear :- D5100. sb800. 18-55 and 55-200 kit lenses. 50mm D Nikkor prime. 75-300mm Nikkor manual focus lens. Manfrotto Tripod.

They want action shots, so just using the sports setting probably won't cut it indoors, I will probably need the flash to freeze the action.
Im thinking of using the 55-200, "s" mode, with the sb800 either on the flash, or triggered from somewhere else.

Can anyone give me some good pointers, settings, or where to start?
I know, get a better lens would be an Idea, but wont happen.

What would You do?
Cheers,
Dan
