Week 04/05-UCI Mountain Bike World Cup 2010
Its the third consecutive weekend away in the mountains for a shoot. As usual I packed lots of gear but not enough clothing. 3 days shooting in the rain with mud, freezing temperatures and 1 pair of jeans ain’t fun. But the shoot was well worth it !Anyways, less talk more pictures !
Autofocus on my 7D set to Ai Servo. Picked the riders right out of the morning mist and fired away !
The Canon eos7D plus 70-200 f2.8 L lens was definitely the main work horse this shoot ! Auto focus tracking the riders as they sped towards and past my position. High Speed continuous burst of course !
Rain and mud still makes for a good time !
The 5D2 took the back seat this round and was in charge of portrait work plus some panning shots on the 3fps burst mode
Shot this panning shot with the 5D2 and 15mm fisheye f2.8. Shutter speed was at about 1/125 !
Part of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup in Leogang was whats called the 4 CROSS. 4 guys free for all battle through a dirt course. Hardcore !
EF300 2.8 baby ! Still the magic lens.
Imagine how sweet the NEW 70-200f2.8L IS USM would look !!!!
Yes I also got to meet the world famous Athertons ! Woohoo ! I gotta get myself a mountain bike now.
Lessons learnt on this shoot ? Umbrellas are awesome and never take your rain cover out of your camera bag. It was built in there for a reason !
