Just a couple shots from Daytona 200 last week. Lots of delays but great weather.

^ Real classy and helpful remark..... :rolleyes:


What lens were you using John?
On your next trip out try shooting in shutter priority, it'll be easier to be in the correct 'range' needed to get a sharp images and you definitely want to be shooting at a higher speed. At a minimum, try keeping your shutter speeds at your focal length and up, unless you want to capture the feeling of speed while panning then you could shoot at those slower speeds. Definitely experiment with different settings and see what works best for you.

It is what it is, I don't think it's offensive to the OP.

No, what it is, is crappy criticism.

CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM. Look it up.

John, what were your settings on these images? Maybe we can help you get better shots next time. Or, maybe you need a different/better lens?

Nowhere in the OP does it mention anything about CC wanted, he merely posted some shots and they were commented on. I think if one posts their work on here, it it fair game. Now if you or the OP takes offense to it, I think it's on you then. Maybe a bit 'thinskin'.

BTW, read my post, I state "I don't think it's offensive to the OP". You are entitled to your opinions as I am.

faster shutter speed for sure. Go outside and shoot cars going by out side, try panning or just freezing the image, they both have a time and a place. your shot of the motocycles for example are coming straight at you so you could freez it with a fast shutter speed. if they were riding sideways to you, you could get some nice panning shots.

Sorry for the delay, CC is fine. I was on the fence probably not the steadiest platform. I was using a 100-400 at 400 in AV but 320 was way too slow. Thank everyone for their comments.

ai servo, tv 1/160-1/200, chose a focus point.. try that next time.. youve missed focus, practice tracking and panning

edit: well, for where you were at, you dont really pan a corner, so indeed, bump that shutter up

On shooting motorcycles at a high rate of speed you have a couple of variables to think about. #! Your choice of lenses in this case the 100-400 is to slow to do a decent job especially at Daytona. If you don't have credentials my suggestion would be to rent the biggest glass you can afford and then check out the sight lines at the track and work off that. You can rent glass online here for a reasonable price www.borrowlenses.com (external link) #2 your shutter speed is very important, if you are shooting head on then the optimum speed is 640th. sec at 200 iso. If you are shooting the bikes as they pass you on the straight then you want to pan with your subject start at 640th and work your way down until you are comfortable. Make sure your camera is set to ai servo with the center spot set. The biggest thing about shooting racing is that practice makes perfect. Your shooting digital so shoot as much as you can to improve your selection of keepers. You should also check out some of the pros websites to give you a better idea on what you are trying to create. Here are a few to check out www.automotophoto.com (external link) www.dorancreatives.net (external link) www.brianjnelson.com (external link) If you have questions please feel free to send me an email.
