Topics I've Started

Some two wheeled Motorcycles! (VRRA HERITAGE RACE)

18 September 2019 - 08:21 PM

Some images from a past race.  These are supposed to be Heritage bikes.  Not sure what the qualifications are, as I am not familiar with this Race Association yet.

 

Hope to learn more this coming weekend. Booked at an out of town track.

 

Enjoy ...

Some more SIDECAR

Some more Side Car images....

 

I just got my passes and hotel for the race this weekend at Shannonville, Ontario!  My first overnight travel gig for Motorcycles.

 

Will be looking to shoot my new favorites.  These racers, I believe, use Shannonville as their home turf.

Egret - Nikon D5 + Nikkor 600mm F4E

09 September 2019 - 11:37 AM

Took this image of an Egret while I still had the NPS gear.

 

Boy, it is nice to have big money, if you can afford this gear! :lol:  I guess it is also even nicer to be able to borrow it from time to time.  

 

Thank you, Nikon NPS. Equipment was used covering the VRRA Sidecar races.

Sidecar shot with/Nikon D5 + Nikkor 600mm f4E

The Nikon D5 is really an amazing piece of equipment as is proving to be the really, really expensive glass in their stable!  Got to use the Nikkor 600mm f4E this weekend.  Loving it as well.

Image is of one of the racers in the Sidecar event.  These guys are nuts on a whole new level! The racers all seem older to me than the guys who ride the fast bikes. Fascinating to watch and to photograph!


Yes? or No? What say you?

Check these two images out.  I am on the fence on them.  I have been told by fellow photographers to START PANNING!

 

OK, I tried it with a 600mm lens!  Yikes, it is hard.  Will bring some other lenses tomorrow to try.

 

What do you think of these, they have any legs as photographs??
