Aye! They're in no order at all, but when I was flicking back through them on the cam you started out good very quickly and got alot better quicker still.. I reckon you could pretty much master it within hours of solid practice at 24/12, then simply fine tune it/experiment..

Perhaps a bit of panning with the rider would erase the blurring - there is a technical term for it...

I learned it at the British Grand Prix years ago - if I can track an F1 car and take SUPERB shots - then its possible with a biker.

I should really get into it again as (IMHO) Im not too shabby when the mood takes me.

ah but you must think ive never taken a picture of a moving object before in my life ... i struggle to get a good picture of something stationary  :B

thanks for the tip though Smile plenty of time for photos at 24/12 though !

Some good angles there. Personally im not a fan of blurred action shots whether its cycling or car related. I prefer to have the main object in focus and the background blurred to get an idea of movement or have both in focus.

I will find my BEST ever photo Ive ever taken - its of Michael Schumacher entering the pit lane at the GP with hundreds of fans leaning over the barriers while he waves - picture is perfect and also tells a good story (coz he won!) - we was probably still doing 100+ mph before he hit the pitlane limit line.

This pic was taken while "panning" recently - only let down my my camera - Im going to ensure the settings are right next time - its too grainy.

Best way I find with panning shots is to prefocus the distance then follow the object in and take the shot at the point where you pre focused then continue panning briefly. I took this with a £100 17mm thick pocket camera, I would like a dslr but need plastic surgery first

Used the same camera on lots of my rally trips, cars doing 80 odd are fine as long as you do the above. A decent dslr you can probably focus on the fly I expect.

Red bikes, heh bit like that ride we did at Blean on new years day! Are you using the flash in that shot above? Bit trickier if you do that but then if its a dark wood you dont have much choice.
