Haha, yeah, it's me. Took me a little while to process, but I finished the good stuff. Enjoy.

Enjoy!
All feedback appreciated!
I'll be adding some more shots to the album; I just wanted to get the good stuff up.

Oh, whoever gave me the thrashbike sticker; your website email is down.

Overall; AWESOME event.

I WAS JUST ABOUT TO SAY THAT but you beat me to it.

Those transformer costumes are the most disoriented costumes ever...

I'm not not photo expert but I think the first one on this thread up top is a sweet shot. It's def. worthy of something. The fall colors and theme is captured very well.
As far as the jump shots go, I think you need to back away for some shots to get the whole prespective of the jump too.

But otherwise nice job. The conditions there that day look super tacky =)

It was tacky times ten. Insanely tacky.
Almost too much grip.

I tried backing off and wider angles a bit, but my attached fill flash couldn't keep the riders well lit without really effecting the foreground. The sun was behind or to the side almost the whole time.

Solutions:
1) Bring separate strobes (one guy did this; I don't have nice lighting yet)

2) Shoot in the morning, when the sun would light the riders more from the front... then I could get the sweet wide-angle I wanted.


Thanks for the compliment on the first pic. I love it too. Taken from the lift, , obviously. I used my 100-400 L.
