Finally – pictures!

So here are some long-awaited photos:

1) Motocross @ Sõmerpalu

As some of you might know – I have decided to develop or extend my photography skills. First test: Moving motorcycles.

It is really hard to get a sharp picture using AF so I tried to find a good spot, manually focus a spot where the driver with his bike should be and when it was time – take the shot. Here are the results:

As there were many distractions, I managed to take some other photographs as well.

Lesson learned: Choose the background wisely. (Blending colors).

Oops: AF decided that the driver and his bike are not important. (Shot with AI SERVO).

If your camera’s burst rate isn’t so good, you have to put your reflexes to the test.

2) Rally Estonia 2014

Test number two – moving cars, flying rocks and dust. By the way – A historic Porsche that passed me during the 2nd stage threw a rock at me … and broke my glasses. Fortunately they are still usable. Maybe I’ll add a picture of my glasses too.
