Hi guys i got a question about taking photos of events, yesterday i was an assistant photographer for the National Youth Envirolympics Challenge and was using a 400D with 18-55 lens(kit). Light wasn't good and it was in the amphitheater and the light was terrible, so all my shots turned out a little blurr at ISO 400-800. Also, the fact that it was alot of action, cheering and movement, it made the people in the picture relatively, but not very blurr. Was my first attempt, so i didn't know what to bring and i kinda forgot my flashgun, but is it a important factor?
Next, I had to photograph the briefing in the lecture theatre. Did not know what to bring.
Could i get some tips on the tools to bring for such events? Thank you
