Gopher Dunes Motocross Finals

I was doing a news story for Rogers today and I just so happened bring my Nikon camera along for a few shots.

It was my first time shooting a motocross event, I haven't done that many sports to begin with, and I had a lot of fun doing so. I first aimed to get some shots of the drivers doing jumps, then close-ups around the corners, then telephoto shots from afar. I don't think the photos came out terrible and really like several of them.

I aimed to get try and get the staple typical ones to see if I could capture those, I played around with my settings to see what worked best. I was juggling around between my big camera and my DSLR for the most part so I could get the footage that I needed. www.gopherdunes.com is the place to check out.

I'll have to try and do it again sometime next season, hopefully the weather will be as nice as it was today!
