Great shots mate,
Were these cropped at all ?. Looks like about 80 / 100th. Do you work to a formula, or just make it up as u go ?.
Do u use the 600 much ?
Sorry about all the questions, but they are pretty good :D

Seeing you're still awake, how was the Moto GP !!!!

The last two were cropped slightly. The first shot was 1/160s, second 1/800s, third 1/125s.

Not sure what you mean by a formula?

I normally favour the 400/2.8 IS, but the 600/4 IS pairs well with 300/2.8 IS.

MotoGP was awesome! :)

Classy shots, I admire your bag of glass!
It looks to me as if you had to carry around a 70-200 2.8, 300mm 2.8 and 600mm 4.
Do you have a special pass and do you sell your images?

Yep, you got the gear right - although for Monday I swapped the 600/4 IS for the 400/2.8 IS and took a few more with the 16-35/2.8.

I had credentials for this event, and no I don't sell my images - it's against AVESCO policy. ;)

The Mark III is great, not a huge leap over the Mark II N IMO, but a nice improvement nonetheless.

Look forward to it! :)

That shot of car #67 in the last shot, definitely the standout of the lot!

Really enjoying the ultra wide pans too :) :D

i am assuming by formula he means settings for panning, front on, rear shots etc, i know for me i generally like to pan at around 1/100 - 1/125 with my 70-200+2xTC but with my 300IS 1/80 and even 1/60 work great but again depends on the background, for front on shots i like 1/320 - 1/400 but thats me.

great shots, love #1 and the last one, are you a cams photographer christian?

Thanks Michael, yeah I have CAMS credentials (State).

OK for formula similar to you - prefer around 1/125s for corner/quarter pans, a bit slower (maybe 1/60s) for the wide-angle pans, and 1/500s or so for front/rear shots for a bit more crispness and subject isolation. :)

Hi Christian,

Nice shots. I saw you there on the week-end but did not get time to say hi. Next round I see you must say hello.

The last shot with Todd and Jamie is particularly nice it was a shame that nice light was not around for the whole of the last race. ;)

Chris


I love Canon!
