4th of March 2006 (Sat), 19:32
So I went to a Freestyle Motocross event as I was yanking about in some other posts. It was insane to say the least. Don't have super fast lenses plus, this was indoor event... Relied on flash and 1600 ISO setting.... Let me know! I have more shots to post and I will once I resize them. This move is call a Cliffhanger! Abosultely crazy in person. The photo no matter how good doesn't do any of this justice! Pure crazy!!!!
C & C please.

The first shot is great, IMHO, but inthe 2nd and 3rd the blue banner is very distracting.

keep going with taking these types of images, maybe purchase a prime lens... have a play with that, don't know how close/far you were away from riders??

You say you were using flash?
I doubt very much if that would have made any difference, the light from the onboard flash won't be powerfull enough to make any difference.
Unfortunately with the lenses you have you are going to struggle (as would I)
Turning the ISO up on that camera is going to create lots of noise, so it will be a compromise between noise/blur.
Just shoot in TV mode and pan with the bike, although I suspect you would probably had to have been at about 1/120 to have got much exposure from that.
Good effort non the less,
Practise, Practise, scream !!!, practise

Considering what you are using, you did a pretty good job. A bigger flash and faster lens would help tremendously.

Really good results from your equipment. You've done well to capture all the action here without cutting off any of the bike or rider. Nice.

Thanks! I was going to bring a 28-70 2.8 but I forgot it at work... I did have the 70-300 on and the speedlite which is what gave the "correct lighting"... I was also in manual focus so I could keep up with the speed of the flying lunatics(though they were totally cool flying lunatics).... Maybe for my b-day this year I will ask for a primo...
Any suggestions? I like shooting sports as well as the family and stuff. Since I am the photo man of the family, it falls on me... Let me know!!

I would use the 70-200 2.8 or a high fast prime for these...you did great with what you had!
