This track brings back good memories. I had my first concussion there when it was Starwest a few years back.

Ugg, I broke my back there a few years ago :(

BDW, how did you take that panoramic Starwest shot? Three or four photos stitched together? This must be from your new Nikon D3/D3S. I like it.

Awesome shots!
I have done a few outdoor rounds, but get to shoot my first SuperCross in Toronto in a couple of weeks. Just in the process of trading/selling/buying my 70-200 F4 for a 70-200 F2.8 for the event (among other things).

Thanks so much! I wish I could goto canada, but I dont have a passport and not enough time to get everything figured out. Shooting indoor arenas is very hard, everytime I shoot in one I try different things and get better everytime. Luckily for you supercross has very bright arenas, I used a speedlite for all those shots, but I could have easily shot at 1000iso and been fine, where as alot of the arenacross arenas you would need to shoot 3200iso, its a big difference.

When I goto indy I'm going to find a way to shoot at f4, 2.8 is very hard with bikes because you have an extremely small focal point, so you might get a helmet in focus and the front of the bike will be out of focus, seems to throw me off the most when trying to get people jumping.

I am a Touring Car photographer and am going to do my first motorcross meeting this weekend. I have been going through this thread since page 1 to get inspiration. BrownDogWilson you are the man!

Is there a reason that so few people "publish" their shutter speeds and apertures?

Any advice?

Great job guys.

It is the closest race for us being in the Northeast. I was wondering about the lighting, and was going to bring my flash. Thanks for the information, and I will post some good or bad.

Great job guys.

If your shooting outdoor your golden, its the same as shooting touring cars, you can probably go a little slower on the shutter actually. Outdoor I like to be at 100iso if possible, with f4 and 1/600 -1/1000

Thanks Arte! I don't usually post up anything more then the photos mostly due to a lack of time or I have no idea what settings I used and would have to go back and look!:p I change things up all the time, haha!

I had to go back through all my shots to find some things for a customer that I had forgotten to do something for. It’s always fun when I run across all sorts of shots I never even knew I had!
