Participants in the Practical Group on Saturday last had an excellent afternoon of photographing noisy, smelly, dirty, fast and exciting motorbikes being thrown around the Junction 6 motocross practice track. The bright conditions allowed low ISOs, fast shutters and for colours to show up at their best. I hope those who took part gained plenty from the experience and I saw a good number learning from what others were attempting, particularly in terms of viewpoint and position. The Practical Group has it’s own Flickr site: https://www.flickr.com/groups/2639449@N21/
and all who participate are allowed to upload 8 photographs from each PG session.
I hope you will look at the latest batch and that Saturday’s group will feel free to post a selection of their work.
Excellent afternoon Roger, enjoyed it immensely, my first time attempting to photograph this genre, needless to say many images not up to scratch, but have a few keepers……..
What’s the procedure for accessing the flickr group?
Brilliant afternoon, thank you for organising.
I can’t believe how many pics I took!
Looking through them quickly I realise I have tried to zoom in too close on many occasions, so have chopped off parts of the riders. Definitely want to try again!
Have found a genre that I thoroughly enjoyed having a go at, and look forward to trying it again sometime.
See you tomorrow.
Many thanks for organising Saturday afternoon practical group.
I had a great time, took loads of photos, some will be binned, one or two may be useful.
I enjoyed meeting group members, had a bit of a laugh along the way and picked up a few good tips too.
See you Tuesday evening.
