I got a lot of good advice in a previous thread on how to shoot a motorcycle race; here are some of the results I got with a rented D3 and 300m f/2.8 VR combo. I welcome any constructive criticism. Some things I learned: (1) If you are shooting from inside the track, it can be hard to move around to different spots safely while the race is going on. (2) Crashes are exciting and would make great photos, but I missed all of the 8 or so crashes that happened because they were over so fast. You really have to anticipate what's going to happen, set up at a likely tight corner, and have your shot lined up in advance if you want to get a crash on film as it happens. (3) A 300mm lens was maybe a little bit too long for the small track this race was on. A 200mm probably would have been just right. Although the 300mm did let me get some great close-ups, it was hard to make sure the action was all in the frame at times, and I found my shooting positions limited. (4) If you are going to be on muddy grass, wrap the bottom of your tripod or monopod legs in plastic bags to keep dirt out of them (5) Panning is an art. I got some pretty good panning shots (not shown above b/c I haven't post-processed them yet), but I still need to practice at it. Thanks again to everyone who gave me advice on shooting this event.
