I went up to the motorcycle racing on the weekend of cover the event for the media company I'm now working for and theses are some of the photos I took. I'm now shooting in RAW as last year most of my stuff was all JPEG and its nice now actually being able to improve my work and only putting out my best work.

I took near 5000 photos on this day and only just over 1200 made it onto my site, the photos where spread out on two cameras which where my 1D mark III and 5D mark III my focal lengths varied from 24mm to 600mm. The editing took me 21 to do and I got 6 hours of sleep before sending them off to get published! the next day I was paying for that as I had a massive headache!

Here are some of the photos from the event.

If you have any questions just post up :)

Heres one of me in action, I took this photo when I was using a remote camera setup which was my 5D mark III with a 24-105 f4 IS lens attached. I was using a set of Yongnuo triggers to set off the camera and the remote was in my left hand pressing the button.

G'day Simon,

I'm guessing that the riders with the orange vests are learners? If so, I guess those probably provide the most drama shots.

Regards,
Craig

From what I'm slowly picking up, the guys in the orange vests are those who are new to this seasons racing so the whole year they will be wearing them... then next year they will not be wearing them. There where two riders that came off just behind me and it was one serious crash but no serious injuries from what the marshals told me.

Wow nice pictures

Quick question. To get them in a blur did you use a panning motion? because they are really crispy clear. Not like the one I can do

Thanks

Hey mate,

Sorry for the long time without replying i've just been busy.

Yes I was panning for those tracking the bike throughout the exposure bursting off a 3 or 4 shots with each bike. It just takes time and a lot of practice before you start to get the hang of it, keep in there mate and you will get there
