    Lax30 shots are wicked, and the best part about these photos is that they make the scenery look fake. Bad ass!

    Strobist Cross ok?

    Shot a twilight cross race a month or so ago. Had a voice activated lightstand holding an Einstien w beauty dish, also had a Yongnou flash on a stand opposite. Shooting w a 7D and a range of lenses.









    also did a portrait session immediately following. was hoping for more mud and exhaustion but i was able to 'coax' them to put on the 100yd stare for me.





    all of it is over here: 2012 Fitworks Muddy Wheels Cross Race - Photography by Don Ricker

    cheers,

    I finally tried some off-camera flash in the bright sun and it really did help to bring out facial and other features that would have been lost in shadows. Snaps were taken with my 5D3, 24-105 f/4L lens, 430EX II, and remote Vello triggers; flash was on a tripod and camera was hand held. Some pics are the sharpest, but were included because I liked the lighting. Thanks for looking Pump track is a GREAT place to practice this type of photography because they just keep rolling round and round and round...

    I'm just getting started with off camera flash. Working with a cheap Chinese speedlite and a remote trigger set. But I'm happy with the results so far.

    Mostly what I'm trying to accomplish is getting some light under the rider's visor, preferably from an off angle, and hopefully from a spot close enough to the trail that the flash will be hot enough to stop the action. It takes me 3 or 4 or a dozen test shots to get a spot set up but I'm guessing I'll get better at that part.

    I'm new to photography in general, started 6 months ago, just picked up a strobe setup pretty cheap a week ago. Finally got to use it over the weekend, this was one of the better ones out of the bunch.

    Here's a photo from my most recent adventure, it's a star trail with 60 photos of the night sky, superimposed into one, to create the trail the stars make.
    Strobist Gallery- let's see your external flash MTB shots-1001276_10152038734469903_292065526_n.jpg

    First are the 60 photos, then I had to take a last shot strobing my external flash onto the Jeep.

    EDIT: Crap, I just realized this has nothing to do with MTB...only external flash.

    Had some good luck with the flashes this weekend. I'm using two in these shots. One is located on left of frame firing across the scene at about 2 foot hight. The other is over my right shoulder about 9 feet off the ground firing down onto the scene.

    Majura Pines RIP

    (for all those in OZ), This shot was taken in a great gully jump at Majura Pines. It's now a road construction site.

    I used two off camera Nikon SB-26s using the in-built slave setting on manual power output, triggeedr by the on camera flash) some sort pentax I borrowed from my friend in the pic). The exposure was about 1/15 second, aperture any guess!

    This was my first time using the flash off the camera via transmitters. I was really fighting the flash because I forget to put new batteries in the flash! Doh! Camera: Canon 70d Lens: 16-35 2.8L Flash: 600ex
