I have been a photographer for a while but have never tried my hand at capturing motorcycle races. Prior to attending this event on 17 June at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway, I read many of the very helpful posts in this forum and tried to employ as many of the tips as I was able. However, this is my first attempt so I still need practice panning and, especially, establishing a stable focus.
The images were taken with a Canon 5DMIII using the Case 4 AF config, 1st & 2nd image priority on "focus" and the "Surround" AF area. While I work on my panning, I was wondering if any other 5DMIII photogs have advice on camera settings. I'm trying to get the most out of the frame rate of the 5DMIII as I won't even entertain the move to a 1D model until I am more practiced at the basics.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
