I was thinking that same thing, the reason I brought it up is someone on deviant art being snobby was "This would be a great shot if you didnt cut his wheel off" and it got me to thinking, you go out and shoot a damn bike flying through the air and not cut some wheels off lmao. sure you could just shoot wide and crop I guess, and I will crop things if I have to, but I really try not to as much as possible.

and lol BDW :p I have some great STL pics with missing heads, damn bikes dont like to stay in my frame sometimes!

If Cudby is doing it, it must be OK!

Shooting with a prime makes it hard not too, I try not to but sometimes I have no choice but to cut the wheels off. But I always try to leave more space in front of the rider than behind him if I'm cutting part of the bike off, gives space for the rider to "move" into.

..but its been years since I've been to a race or shot mx

M always for me. It's my preference. Rarely I'll shoot AV.

Did my first MX shoot on Sunday. Intense!! I thought Touring Cars was exciting, but the closeness to the action was excellent. I started out with the 70-200 but the dust scared me and within an hour I was back in the Legnum changing to my 50 II which remained on till I got home. The X4 and 15-85 didn't even get out of the bag :)

I got too many "parked wheels" (the websites advised 1/500-1/1000) so will be shooting a lot more at 1/50 and move away from Tv to M in future.

Oh did I mention the dust...

I always shoot in manual no matter what im doing, and especially for sports stuff, the only other thing I would suggest is shutter priority(tv) since you need to have your shutter speed set.

Yeah the dust is wicked, lol. Thats why I went with a fully weather sealed body and lens. Everyday I come home and clean all my crap off, it gets pretty bad. I dont get stopped wheels at 1/600 at 1/1000 I will sometimes. 1/50 is great if you like to pan

Arte it you can find a way to get a clear shot at 1/50 make sure to let me know. Bikes aren't as big as cars and they sure as heck aren't going smoothly down a long straight very often. And Kris, you crack me up with your obsession with shooting RAW.:D And a little dust, or a lot of it never hurt anything much as long as you aren't changing lenses in the middle of it.
