Hi,
I was at my first DirtJam last week, not as a pro but I had the opportunity to shoot from the same location as the photographers.

I think the photos came out just fine, but I would love some feedback on composition, style, colors, sharpening etc to help me progress.

All images are taken with a 30D + Sigma 17-70. All at ISO100, Av-Mode, Average Metering Mode(1), Manual Focus (prefocused), and shutterspeeds above 1/1000, Full Exif should be in the photos.

Shot in RAW, processed in Bibble, then CS2 for tweaking + sharpening.

Anyway, here they are.

BMX, Turndown

Nice shots, I like #1 especially. That shot really puts things in perspective.

good stuff I really like the 4th image (i even like the lense flare) and if you would have been closer on the tailwhip one it would have been insane.


:cool:

thanks for the feedback, on the 4th do you mean just cropped closer or closer from below (more blue sky and height)? I can definitely get closer to the rider by cropping.

i really like the angle of the last ... especially with the hangglider in the pic... was it intended to look as if they were jumping off the side of a mountain?

I was lucky with the hangglider :)

It wasn't necessarily meant to look as if they were jumping off a mountain, but I think the depth in the images really show when shot from behind with the other side of the valley as the background. It gives a sense of height too. Most of these were shot at f5.6, I am sure that a f2.8 lense or larger would cream out the background more (after this session I want a tele...)

Great job of combining the dirtbike shot with the landscape around you. The glider in the sky of the last shot really caught my attention.
