Superbikes and Girls at Mallory Park (with added cake. . )

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by Jewson, Jun 29, 2008.

  1. Hi All,

    Just the latest offerings from the latest round of the British SuperBikes at Mallory Park. . .

    Great weekend was had by all, with some nail biting moments .. .

    Qualifying was out of this world. . 9/10th's of a second separated the top 15. . Sounds quite a lot but on a circut that is completed in under 60sec's :eek: 

    Any thoughts and comments greatfully received. . .

    I will start with some close up bike shots. . (dont wory the glamour will come later. . :wink:)

    Thanks Brooks, My main lens for the weekend was the 300mm AF-S F2.8 with either the 1.4 or 1.7tc, for the close up pics I used the 50mm F1.8 and for the Pit Babes either but mainly the 18-55 or the 70-200 (Think I took 1-2 pics with the 70-200..Too Long).
    I'm very lucky as I work for a couple of the teams and get good access to get pics and also get to see a lot of what goes on behind the scenes as well..Lucky to know the guy who supplies (if thats the right word) some of the Pit Babes. . :biggrin:

    thats the exact lens I have and the same one I would use, but I'm curious what your iso was at, Aperture, and shutter speed.
