Go Kart Racing

10 posts in this topic

I went to the go kart track last night and tried to use some of the tips from you guys from the last time. I use a slow shutter speed and panned with the kart. It was tough because the way it's set up you can't see the front stretch from most of the stands because of the banking. The back stretch has a bunch of light poles so I kept getting them in front of the kart. I did manage to find a spot on the top row of the stands to get some decent ones. It was a nice night and lots of fun to watch. Here's the results

Mike, these images don't show up. All that's there are five statements: "password protected image."

You were too fast for me this morning Steve. I forgot that I put them in my family album on my pbase site which is password protected. I was relocating them as you were posting.

Guess I'd better slow down my shutter speed, eh Mike? winkwink

In a couple of these in particular (the side shots), the slower shutter speed and sense of motion provided by the blurred BG and the spinning tires is really good. I like the comp on the one with the drivers coming at the camera, too.

I especially like the way it all came together, on the third one. What should be sharp is sharp, and what should be blurred is blurred. It looks like he's really hauling a$$.

Now that shows speed! Nice work matching the carts' speed in those panning shots, you've really captured the motion well.

Great captures on all but the 72 and 24 shots are the ones I really like the most.

Thanks Everyone. It's hard keeping up with those quick little karts. They're moving pretty good. I had a lot of garbage when I went through them.

Thanks again for the tips.

    •     The assumption here being that since he didn't know, nobody knew.    Because obviously, nobody is smarter than him.
    •   Thanks for the reply. I was looking at the IQ pro hunter. It is a three pin, two fixed and one that is adjustable. The other would be the 5 pin micro.   i have thought about an HHA single pin but the sight makes me nervous to have in the rut. if ever I need to take a quick shot in an area I didn't expect a deer to come from
    •     Or possibly just one, since the two parties are getting more alike all the time.   Probably not a constitutional convention in the normal sense, but as we turn more and more into a police state, there is a definite possibility of a military coup.  There was a survey done in 2015, and 43 percent of Republicans surveyed said they could envision a military coup in the U.S.   http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/2015/09/10/Military-Coup-US-Surprising-Number-Americans-Might-Support-One     Republicans (43 percent) were more likely to say they can envision a scenario in which they could support a military coup than Democrats (20 percent). Perhaps that difference is related to having a Democratic president who some critics on the right see as overstepping his power.     (What's laughable is those same critics have no problem at all with a Republican president overstepping his power.)
    • Don't have to worry, there won't be a constitutional convention.    And we will have two parties or what passes for parties for a long time.
    • This Health biatchin reminds me of a dog that keeps barking and chasing a car down a street daily--then one day the car stops and the dog doesn't know what to do so it just pizza on one tire or walks away.
    • Juneau4 and Swiveldigger  each picked up a win- 200 whoopin pts. (That has to be an all time low for winning) and they didn't have the same drivers.   We had a couple contestants that had 0 pts and that may be because they just didn't get entered in time, so I'm thinking I can put it in where you can have a Mulligan for each segment. (Your low score for 1 week is thrown out each segment-Spring, summer, and playoff.  I'll try to have a winner each segment and a overall champion.   What do you guys think? I'm just thinking if more wish to join now it would possibly make it more interesting through out the year.
