I've seen a heap of useful threads on the best way to use flash for motocross/supercross, but most of it has related to night or low light shooting.

Just curious - how many of you regular MX shooters (daylight hours) would take and regularly use their flash to fill shadows as opposed to only trying to ensure you're in the right position in relation to the sun?

I'm talking about nice bright, clear sunny days by the way.

I would definately use a flash if i were close enough to the track. I just shot at the Pala National last weekend and i didnt use a flash because the barrier was about 10-15 feet off the track. But if i were close enough i would definately use it.

check the MX thread on here, you will see some great examples of fill flash being used. Not really any rhyme or reason, I always shoot in Manual, and meter approx where they will be as i spin (if shooting close with my UWA) and add flash from there to minimize shadow.

I shoot MX every weekend using off camera flash, have a few setups, work fine summer all the way through winter.. come to think of it, there arent many shots I take without flash... a bit of a play this week... http://www.facebook.co​m …9.377334.523730​698&type=3 (external link)
