I took some shots this summer, I haven't posted in a while and there are not sportbike shots, so hopefully this spices things up. I think I really improved this summer, but you tell me. I learned a lot and really can't wait to get out there for 2006 and learn more..

Also for all the sportbike fans, please have a look at www.roadripping.com (external link) I rebuilt my website and it would be nice to see some sportshooters in the photography section or in the photo album.... thanks

Nice work, Jeff! I especially like #4 where you've got them all lined up, knee down in that left-hander. Did you do all these with your 70-200? I'm planning to shoot at an AMA race or two this year and have yet to select a lens. I'd like to fill up a good portion of the frame so I was worried that 200 may not be enough. What do you think?

Thanks dude, yes I did them all with the 70-200, but I have a track pass and at this particular track it does good because it's small. I wish I had more distance, ie 100-400mm and I wish I had IS because all my shots are slow. My magazine does NOT want to see RIMS standing still. Slow and low is there model. I've seem a lot of other pics that are Sharp, but sure everything is sharp at 1/2000 lol. I'm shooting in the 1/80 1/125/ 1/200 range and I move up to 400-800 oncoming shots. Unfortunately at slow speeds it's hit and miss. Another thing is that all the sponsors need to be visible and clear. I also like to shoot at wierd angles and make things a little different from the guys out there just shooting boring shots.

I see what you mean, keeping the sense of motion and keeping all the sponsor logos clear sounds challenging.

So do you think a 100-400 L at spectator distances is enough?

Thanks again guys, I always remember why I like coming back to this site so much.

Your right keeping the logo's clear is very challenging, this is where IS will definitely help, mind you I haven't used and I want it. 400mm from a spectator position could be cutting it close, but I think the over angle will really suck from that position. Being level at the track and from a distance is good, but if your elevated then I don't think its going to work. I don't know your situation or track layout, are there other guys there without track passes shooting. If so do what they do and use what the use, that's how I learned.

Again it's practice practice, and personally I think every shot is a good shot till I see someone else's lol.

Yeah I hear ya, I hate having to watermark stuff. But biker guys always rip my roadripping photos off, so it has to stay and stand out lol. Plus it's good advertising for my site.

Sorry dude... but I'm glade you like the shots.... it's so tough.

I shoot the British Superbike series mainly from the public side of the fence. I mainly use my 100-400 IS, but sometimes depending on the track I stick to the 70-200 f2.8 IS and have a 2x tc in my pocket just in case I want to get real close. I find either set up gives good results, please click the link below to see some of my shots and see what you think. Some tracks like Silverstone in the UK it don't matter what lens you use, you cant get close enough to the fence to blur it out anyway :)

I've always been thinking about adding the 2x to my 70-200. I'm afraid of things being grainy, and I do notice a lot of grain in your potos. I'm not sure if this is just the small quality JPG reduction or not. Let me know as I would be curious. Great shots and you proved me wrong as some of the higher shots look great. Goood JOB
