    At some point i will try and post a Sports Photographers User Guide. Some other photographers seem to think its a glamorous under takking!

    I like this shot becuase of the reflection in the visor, its just a shame i couldnt comapse the image so that there was a greater sense of spped as well as freedom in the road ahead.

    My 1st tip for Sports Photography:

    1. Dont ever take your eye out of the viewfinder!

    Great image Jim...what lens were you using? Using a TC as well? And as far as your comment about not taking your eye out of the viewfinder...isn't that the truth. I have missed some great action because I thought the play was over. If I only had a dollar for each shot that never made it onto my CF card because I took my eye off the action, I'd be buying more gear because I'd have more available bucks.

    Hi,

    A 300mm AFS F2.8 no TC this time, but i do use the TC14E II a great deal, the TC20E II is too much i am thinking about puttin git on ebay, becuase the light is reduced so much the camera stuggles to af track, for stationary or partial moving subjects it may well be o but for motor sports work not a chance. Really i need a 400mm F2.8 but thats way out of my budget! I have missed lots of shots becuase i wasnt looking through the viewfinder! Inc when the come of the bikes!

    Thanks for the additional information Jim. I enjoy learning how people get some of their images. You certainly did well capturing that image.
