p.1 #1 · Motocross from this weekend.


I posted last week and got some amazing feedback, I tried incorporating some wheel spin into the images, got more spin, but will be trying for more in the next race. These images are from a local race from Sunday. All were shot in light over cast between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.. Let me know what you guys thinks

All great images! It's amazing what those little ones can do before they realize how much it hurts if they mess up...

Thanks for sharing,
Paul

During the 6th race one of the riders left in an ambulance, after that they all stopped showing off...
Thank you for the kind words

Very good shot's. I'm curious, are you using auto iso? wondering why the values are changing. The saturation is probably the highest I would push, so don't add more. Maybe the saturation was higher because of the wb, warmer colors?

I was in Aperture priority mode, mainly , I used the Iso to keep the shutter speed at a speed I liked. The overcast was shifting from very light to very dark and back again. Photo 8 was shot in Shutter priority mode

Oh OK. Yeah I know how even a cloud passing over can make your shutter speed tank. You did great on the panning shot.

p.1 #8 · Motocross from this weekend.


All great shots with my favs being #4 and 8. Number 4 for the emotion in the eyes and 8 - great panning work.

The most important part, IMO, are the eyes and they are clear and in focus. As for the wheel spin - yes that's important but also when the rider has the front wheel in the air it is obvious that the photo isn't static. Plus, if you freezing the action with a nice long roost or dirt/dust getting kicked up by slamming into a berm is also as effective as trying to incorporate a sense of motion such as wheel spin.

I usually try and shoot in manual for the shifting clouds, sun etc. I'm usually in the forest and light can really change in there. I've learned to get quick adjusting either speed or aperture as needed - pending on the look I'm out after.

My only complaint would be the colours. I would prefer having a bit more saturation and black and a bit more contrast. The colours seem dull - almost as if the bike's plastics have been sitting out in the sun for a few years. But, again, this is my preference.

Gotta love these little rippers especially when they can clear a double and I'm still struggling with it!! Which is why I ride the woods
