p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · First motocross shots of the year.


Hello

These are the first shot's I've taken this year. There were a ton of riders at the track (over 90) and I have a 70-200 which is not very long on a full frame, so I was just messing around with some settings, and really not getting the shot's I'm use to getting. Thank you for checking them out.

Nice job on all the shots...great panning work on 1 & 2...while I am not a fan of the angle/position on #1, the shot is crisp and clean. I really like #2, 3 and especially 4...I really like the angle coming at you, and for me the eyes make it. I may have cropped 4 a big tighter..nice job! I am off to an amateur night race this evening, that should be interesting.

Great work in the panning, something I continue to struggle with. High risk high reward, I guess.

4 is my fave, would like to see it tighter.

Number 2 is my favorite. How far were you from the subject? Also was it overcast? Was your panning done handheld?

mxrider641 Thank you, good luck at the races tonight.

jmcaverly Thank you

corndog Thank you

Paulthelefty Thank you

I normally don't get a lot of side shots like number 1, but I wanted to make sure I didn't get hit there were just so much action going on. The last photo is my favorite from the day, I like the angle, and the riders position. I ride also, but not on this day.

pedwatt I was really close, I'm using a D700 and a 70-200 VRII (focus breathing makes is a bit shorter yet) so yeah, I'm VERY close to the track. I just bought a 300 f/4 and I'm using it this weekend. It was overcast, so I didn't have to worry about highlights much at all (overcast the best plus late or early) all handheld.

Thank you guys so much
Dave

Mataz 426, thanks for the information, I am looking forward to working on panning stuff this weekend. I honestly don't mind side stuff, it sells, as long as their up on their pegs.

Good shots. I'm partial to #3 since that's my bike also and I love the 2 strokes.

Was this a practice day or a race day?

pokemanyz this track only has practice. I've had over a dozen two strokes in my life, they are awesome.

82NoMe I did post some, but they seemed to not get any attention I was probably being too impatient. I'll get some up there. Thanks for asking though
