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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual POV

I love grubbing in the undergrowth or looking for that interesting shot. Since thinking about this topic I realise I have been concentrating on that classic shot and a lot of my Photo’s are pretty much run of the mill cliched efforts. Well I intend to get back to my real self. Here are a few different sort of POV shots to begin with..

I will try to post each day.

Warning this next picture could be distressing to some. Continue reading

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.
