    Motion Blur Pictures

    I'd like to see some please

    I got a GoPro from Santa and I'm figuring it out... I've gotten a few cool ones, but I just love those pics where the ground is flying by. Here's a couple... what do you have?

    I like those low shots, if you don't mind me asking, how did you get those?

    You don't like the 'crotch cam'?

    It's a GoPro using the seatpost/handlebar mount attached to the rigid fork, and a couple extensions, to get the camera away from the bike a little bit. Here's another:

    Gotcha, I had a GoPro mount at the same place, went on the singletrack, and now its missing :S

    The "crotch" view is decent, but won't work with my setup :P Bags delight on my bike.

    Yeah it makes me nervous on the trail. I like it mounted on my body rather than the bike when I'm doing 'real' mountain biking.

    Have a few from the GoPro like the ones you're showing, but my favourite is a side on motion blur that I had to "tweak". Friend took the pic of me going up and over a log, but background was crystal sharp (he didn't pan) and I had a very nice blur suggestion action, so a little time in photoshop on the background and voila, real nice action/motion shot.

    I've been waiting for months for it to rain, so that I can load up the fork with bidons and shoot across this low level crossing, with hopefully much streaming water to photograph.




    So while I've been waiting, I've been determining the best picture angle, shutter and aperture settings with my old Canon S70 point-and-shoot, fitted to a bracket clamped on the bar ends. All shot at 50 ISO ... 1/4sec @ f8.0.








    A while back, coming down Victoria Pass over one of the old convict bridges, in the Western Blue Mountains, in Oz. It was a wild ride. I can't remember the exposure for this shot, but it was something like a 1/15 or a 1/25 sec @ F8.0, again shot with the Canon S70.

    Really like this one, motion is great as is the light and colours in the shot, the blue really pops in contrast to the late/early warm light.

    Shot this with my Nikon D7000 clamped (gently) to my cross bike top tube with a Manfrotto Superclamp on some doubletrack in Houston. Nikkor 10.5 DX fisheye at f/20, 1/8 second at ISO 100. I tried to find the smoothest section of trail but still couldn't avoid getting some vertical "shake" motion in the shot.

    FANTASTIC shot, may inspire me to try a few with my D7000, but more than likely though my old D70s will become my main on ride camera now I've got my new Lowepro AW200 bag.

    from a few years back.
    Setup, one remote flash is to my right and the second flash on the other side of the trail to the left, and the light to the left is the sun shinning through the trees

    Here is one that was captured on a Samsung Galaxy S3... I was riding at Mountain Creek in New Jersey and my buddy managed to snap this shot of me hitting a small jump.

    Hello Sarah Morin,

    If your comments were addressed to my photos, I used an old Pentax Optio camera.

    I wish I could say I planned them but actually, I wanted them to be non-blurry photos of the students I ride with, but as you can see, the kids just rode faster than the camera. No concentration needed.
