    My Favourite D800 Images
    This past weekend was the last Superbike Race in Canada at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. A new experience for me thanks to a fellow photographer and friend who invited me for the weekend.

    On the Friday, I learned that working media gets special photographic privileges so I applied for the permit and got in. (I have Nikon NPS status, work as a pro, and I have started publishing an eMagazine called "PlanetNikon Photographer", you can download it free on Facebook and have a look at the first issue. pdf format. Join the Group first.)

    They indoctrinate you first, take safety and dangers, do's and don't do's. Very enlightening. With a vest, you get to go pretty much anywhere in the park right up to the concrete guard wall by the track. A photographer I met there was almost flattened by a car on one of the turns last year, I was told. So, I chose to stand where inertia would not sent any motorcycles towards me in the event of a mishap. Only two crashes on the course, not really sure how badly off the injured riders were, but it wasn't good from what I heard.

    Over all, a simply wonderful weekend. I enjoyed every aspect of this and I think I am very badly HOOKED!

    Here is the rub .... I shot these with my D800 and Nikkor 200-400mm f4G VR, hand held!
    AF-C worked like a charm.
    These guys were going some 140 mph as they zoomed by, I tracked and shot without issue! The D800 is supposed to be a studio camera, but as you can tell, it did pretty good on the track!

    Enjoy the images....

    Jordan Szoke, bike #1, was the Champion... 13th year win in a row! Weekend was a double header, he won both races, the last one... just barely.

    One other amazing event at the Track was the Extreme Bike Stunt Riding event. This just had my jaw dropping.

    The bikes go up off a ramp, I would say a good 3 to 4 stories high, in the air.... these guys do their stunts AND.... LAND THE BIKE SQUARELY on the down ramp.

    Never seen anything like this. These images don't do it justice!

    Enjoy!

    Looks like your auto-focus was working great. What lens were you using? (No exif in pics...)

    Here is a link to the PlanetNikon Photographer publication on FB....

    Tell you a little more about it. The purpose of the e-zine is to get you published!

Advertising it and showing off the work. We do NOT resell the images, it is not a copyright grab, etc. etc.

    Our next issue starts collecting stories and images now. Always looking for new people. Been to a Fair? Been to a Football game? Captured some cool news story on a Fire or Flooding etc. Write up a short piece and get the images to me.

    The whole purpose of the e_zine is to showcase Photographers using Nikon gear.

    Interested, start with Facebook, check out the group, then ask questions.

    No EXIF as they go from

    .nef
    to large JPGs
    then to 900px or to a size that fits where every I am posting.

    Done in Photoshop and that eliminates the exif.

    I used the Nikkor 200-400mm
    most ISO around 200
    most f at 7.1
    most shutter speed at 1/6400s
    all hand held.

    I recently received my tickets to the Nikon Canada NPS Member Exhibition Tour scheduled for September.

    This is Nikon Corporations 100th Anniversary Year in business and they are celebrating with a Canada wide Gallery Exhibition featuring 100 images from Professional Nikon Photographers across Canada. I submitted some images of my work for their consideration and two were selected under the categories listed below.


    These 100 selected images will appear in Galleries across Canada as well as 4 VIP Events in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal. I am deeply honored to have these two images selected to be part of the 100th Anniversary Exhibit.
