When I was younger I raced motocross so I can say unequivocally that it’s in my blood. The transition to motocross photography is an easy one for me. I still get the adrenaline rush with my camera in hand as I sprint from jump to jump and corner to corner. I call it “Photo-cross.” The action on the track is a great place for sports photography, it allows experimenting with testing different shutter speeds for motion blur, fill-flash, wide angle and long lenses. After processing about 250 pics I decided to create images with a painterly look. I started with the out-of-camera image and used photomatix to tone map the single exposure into what is referred to as a Pseudo-HDR image. After a couple of oil painting filters and plugins viola a cool image that would make a nice print, even a poster. Stay tuned, I’m going back to another event the first week of May.
