Day 2, sort of.

 

So many images, starting to get mixed together.

 

A small (very small) sampling from the different places I set up on the track.  Even climbed up the TSN camera tower because they weren't there and the Marshals said, "You signed the waiver ....."!   :D

 

So, we went for it!

 

Please, FELL FREE TO CRITIQUE ANY OF THE RACE IMAGES I post.  I very much welcome some honest discussion on these, its the only way to improve on my performance for next time.  Also, these are certainly not the best selection of images... going through some 6,000 clicks and grabbing here and there to give you an idea.

I like them all, Art.  Nice work.

 

However, I have to ask:  is the very last image from the same event?  The bike looks like it is a dirt/stunt bike, completely different from the bikes in your other images.  Same goes for the rider.  If this is from the same event, then all I can say is:  "That must have REALLY hurt!"  :lol:

Thanks, Mark, Peter and Jim!!

 

Mark,

 

Yes, it is from the same event.

 

Our all time record holding 13 time winner, Jordan Szoke, owns a stunt motorcycle group, or company .... don't quite know what to call it.  They put on approximately 8-10 shows over two days.  

 

These guys are .... to put it simply ... AMAZING!

 

They go up a steep ramp, 72 feet in the air, do these stunts, and land on another steep, short ramp .... PERFECTLY every time.  It is really something to see!

 

And, they use these dirt bike type motorcycles, probably because they are very fast and very light.

Another nice series Art.

That last shot is what happens when the rider hits (bounces) off the photographer.

Art, you asked.

I think you need to open the lens more. So the second driver in two and three will be out of focus. Just my two cents.

Thanks, Dennis.

Photography: 100 percent art, 100 percent technical. It takes a photographer to blend them into an image.

Yea, that is close to what it looks like.  I was very, very close to where a bike hit the wall, just behind me.  Brutal. Made me think....

 

All media photographers are required to attend a morning daily briefing from Race and Track Officials in the Media Centre before we get our Media Vest.

 

1) they tell us where we can and can't go.  And why.

2) they tell us not to do the stupid things that stupid people have done in the past.

3) they tell us not to be GOULS in a crash situation.  Wait until driver is up and fine.

- a few weeks ago, someone died on the track.  The morons in the crowd were there with their cell phones and some idiot photographers were there too shooting the body.  <_<

- want to NEVER go back to this track? ... do this again.... bye bye for ever.   They are real serious now about none of this happening again.  Cops took peoples cell phones!! and erased the images.

4) Personal Safety:

- no tripods

- no hanging over wall ----->DUUUUH!  But, if they don't say it, guess what !!!

- no CROSSING TRACK ----> see above ... duh

- have an escape route

- no standing between race track retaining wall and ANYTHING behind you, like a billboard or a fence.

- no touching/leaning on/sitting on/resting against the race track wall

- DO NOT put anything ON the race track wall

 

- and my favorite.... you can only go down on one knee, not two and not on your stomach

 

I saw two crashes right in front of me.  You have time to go .... WHOA .... and it is OVER.  It is so fast, you can't move.  Maybe, if it is coming towards you, you have time to have your life flash before your eyes, but that is it.

 

Cars will hit the wall and SPLIT THE CONCRETE!!!  I saw it in a couple of places.

 

The bikes are dangerous because there is a slight chance they will flip over the wall.  Bike crashes are brutal to see and hear.

 

Thought I would share that bit of experience.

Oppps, the question about DoF.....

 

Here is what I found ...

 

I shot a lot of images at f4.

 

High shutter speed, NOT ENOUGH DoF!!

 

I shot at f5.6, not bad, much better focus.  And, since the name of the game is focus .... I then went to a higher ISO, as Phil suggested and shot a ton at f8 and almost all the images of the main rider were in focus.  That is all that mattered to me.

 

The DoF on the 200-400 is pretty narrow and I wanted all the bike and rider to be focused.  The rest, although it looks great, was secondary.

These are all shot for PlanetNikon Photographer Magazine.  I am going to do an article on the Park for Mobil 1 and for the Superbike.
