Motorcycle Action Photography

Saturday 11 May
Willowbank. - 8:45am - 2 Hours
Gold Coast Photography Group
Anthony Parker
This session will show you how to capture those high action sports shots with use of quick shutter speeds and dynamic angles.

We will also look at using SLOWER shutter speeds and panning techniques to capture another perspective of speed.

It is recommended that longer focal length lenses are used - this will allow for closer capture of the action as we will be shooting from spectator vantage points - focal lengths of 200mm plus would be preferred.

This will be high action photography at its best.
