KXF 250 Problems

Weeeeelll, I have not posted for a while as I have been busy with my photography. Over Easter weekend I rebuilt a KXF 250 and had a problem that puzzled me. Check this out, I posted the story on this forum

TEMCC Club Championships Round 2 Part 3

Ha ha I didn’t realise I took so many, one of this batch is a fantastic shot which I will post full resolution later. All these shots were captured with a Canon 5DMkIII with a Tamaron 70-200 2.8 Lens. Usually I shoot Moto Cross with the camera set on shutter priority using 125th to 200th of a second shutter speed, that way I get some motion blur of wheels spinning. Although some blur of the rider is often visible, I like this slight blurring compared to a sharp motionless image that a faster shutter speed will produce. I like to also use a circular polarising filter. which cuts the goggle reflection down to make the eyes visible.

TEMCC Club Championships Round 2 Part 1

Here are some of the shots I captured on Sunday (More to follow). These are not full resolution as I downsized the files for faster uploading. There are a few “action Blur” shots which I have kept as I like the arty look of them. I enjoy the action photography that this sport provides. Each shot records a vision that only occurs for that split second. I do not offer photo’s for sale but I am happy to provide a full resolution image file if you ask and provide a memory stick or SD card. Oh did I mention I like beer! You cam message me on Face Book

 

 

I have actually recently acquired a large format printer so when set up, I may offer prints but I would need to recoup cost of inks and paper. Anyway Enjoy!! _Y9A6791 _Y9A6795 _Y9A6796 _Y9A6799 _Y9A6800 _Y9A6801 _Y9A6804 _Y9A6805 _Y9A6806 _Y9A6807 _Y9A6809 _Y9A6810 _Y9A6811 _Y9A6812 _Y9A6815 _Y9A6816 _Y9A6817 _Y9A6818 _Y9A6820 _Y9A6821 _Y9A6824 _Y9A6825 _Y9A6827 _Y9A6828 _Y9A6830 _Y9A6831 _Y9A6832 _Y9A6834 _Y9A6835 _Y9A6836 _Y9A6837 _Y9A6838 _Y9A6839 _Y9A6840 _Y9A6841 _Y9A6842 _Y9A6843 _Y9A6844 _Y9A6849 _Y9A6855 _Y9A6856 _Y9A6857 _Y9A6859 _Y9A6860 _Y9A6861 _Y9A6862 _Y9A6863 _Y9A6864 _Y9A6865 _Y9A6866 _Y9A6867 _Y9A6868 _Y9A6870

 

 

Moto X Pics TEMCC Championship Rnd 1

All these shots were taken with a Sigma 120-400mm  Super Telephoto, Shutter speed around 200-125th of a sec. Most shots were in poor light so I am quite surprised by the results I achieved with this lens. I used flash for a few shots as fill light only and kept it on about 1/4 power. I only purchased the lens that afternoon and still need to learn how to get the best from it. Anyway these are the better shots. I kept one poorly focused shot because it shows the bike bottomed out with dirt flying from under the front guard (rider 33 image No 9050).

Top End Moto Cross Club 26th May 2013 Natural Terrain Race Meet

Here are all the pics that I took on Sunday, between racing (circulating) myself! I know I missed some classes; Sorry ( Maybe next time). I have processed these in one go, I have not cropped or enhanced these images. I have also saved them in lower resolution for quicker upload. See my next post here where I will show a few shots at full resolution/size and you can see how the Pics look (time permitting). I have bought a new lens and the sharpness is much better than previous posts. Although my set up is not “top of the range” professional gear, I believe I can still produce reasonable shots that could blow up to at least A3 size. 

I cant make any promises as time is always the factor, but if you catch up with me at the track and provide me a memory card (Maybe a donation of your choice – A beer or two) and details of the pics you like I can load these onto the card for you to process how you like, maybe even get a sticker for your hauler at a sign makers. I can load them as Jpeg and/or Raw image which can be processed and printed at any Photo Print outlet, then you can frame them or throw darts at them.

Anyway have a look.

Top End MotoX Club:14th April: Juniors

I managed to get a few pictures of the last round of racing because I was too tired to ride anymore. Yeh I know, I was sooking out! 

It was a great day in the Territory hot sun but a well watered track kept the dust down. “Well done”, to the volunteers who put in a great effort.
