Thank you I am glad you like them. I am using a Canon 30D and a 100-400 L IS
I've been trying to save up for a decent 400mm for my Nikon D200... but I'd rather do the 3-4 trackdays
I know it is expensive for sure. I kind of make a living shooting so I can justify the cost
All the shots from Sundays races are now online. Sorry it took me a few days to upload
lol... I guess that answers my "why don't my pictures look like that?" question!
yes they are outstanding pics, you will have to share ,,, what camera and what lens and settings, I would love to get those results of my friends when I am not on the track
Thanks for posting them
I have the EOS D40 and several lenses, do you manually set it or leave it on full auto?
I manually set it always. The problem is that on any of the auto or partially auto settings the exposure changes so much. For example if the center point is on a white part of the bike it will underexpose the rest and the opposite for dark sections. Manual gives you much more control.
Another big thing is to get comfortable holding the camera and panning with the bike. Slower shutter speeds if you can get them crisp are much better. It all takes practice, I have been doing this for about 3 years full time and still have so much to learn.
Here is a link to some shots I took at Miller today during WSBK practice.
