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 past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
