Scott, stumbled back on an old thread and found this shot among others you took...



You've come a l-o-n-g way in a relatively shot time.

Keep 'em coming.

Loving it.

A question: 1/50 but what is your f-stop and ISO? You have me wanting to go out and try myself.

you just have to meter it like normal. with such a slow shutter you've got plenty of light so even on an overcast day I didn't have to tweak ISO, some of them might have been 250 but I think most were standard 200 ISO, and then I would just meter for the f-stop, and with an overcast day it was mostly about 10 or 11 for f stop. the more I do it the more amazed I am at the results. I was getting some good stuff today without clouds and decent sun light but then I was having to go up even higher on F stop, 15-16 but was still shooting under mostly 100 on the shutter.

these from today. the Cobra/#57 F16 @ 1/80 shutter.



the yamaha #30 F16 @ 1/125 shutter.



and both riders ON THE GAS!!

I'm liking it!

this from this morning before the clouds moved out. I was determined to see how low we could go with the shutter.

my buddy Alex Todoverto bringing the heat @ 1/30 shutter.

if you don't want to see a large size picture of former pro Scott Sheak airing it out, don't click on this.

Samantha Fritz in morning practice.

She would later ride 250B and College boy and in moto 2 of College Boy notch a VERY respectable 6th of 11 just 3 races after completing her 2nd 250B moto.

this girl freaking rocks.

You really need to do a caption contest on this set

so...yesterday I'm at AK Farms MX. I'm doing my usual thing, stalking children with a camera, and I use a group of people to meter off for light. guy in the black jacket noticed and apologized for "being in your way". I said not at all, you've got a lot more at stake here then me (his kid was on the track)..




a few minutes later I hear a yell and this guy is running. fast.

it's never pretty when people go down, it's even worse when it's the little ones.




thank god they both eventually got up and made it off the track without needing the EMT's.






here is the little guy from morning practice, on the gas! probably not a keeper but in this case we'll make an exception.

thats a wrap...last race of the season today. a few more open practices but the season is over in this neck of the woods. I was at a MX track both days this weekend and both days last weekend.

should have enough pictures to get me through the winter..

worthy of note today at Walden Playboys was a $500 2 lap dash for cash.

enough said..

only 5 of them lined up but it lived up to the billing.

lets have a look. my favorite local rider Chuckie Fox #94 exits turn one in the lead. obviously important as...it's only 2 laps.

to say these boys were riding with some additional motivation and a heightened enthusiasm was an understatement. I'm not %100 sure but I believe it was winner take all.

end of lap one Chuck is clearing the finish line jump and manuvering a whip for max speed etc. there aren't a lot of people who can ride todays 450 motocross bikes to anything remotely close to their potential and when you see guys who can it is in a word amazing. sell every bike you own you suck. I did and I do.

2 laps means you better have a plan if you want to get some pictures and mine was to be here right before the finish which is to the right. this is where it would all come down to if it was close. a single double double triple single triple all of the above depending on your guts, skill, cajones, nerve, etc etc.

not the place for indecision but these guys are good.

coming into this Chuckie had a SLIGHT lead but 446 wasn't going down without a fight. it's showtime.
