Hey all! here are my top photos from the year, I’m posting this from my phone so you will have to follow the link unfortunately. Hope everyone has a great new year! http://bit.ly/UgBJC9
This was my fifth World Superbike Race at Miller (I think) and I had myself convinced that I could get through an entire race season without visiting the attitude turns. As Scott’s primer points out the you do get a great series of stacked bikes or cars from that vantage point but it is very over photographed. The shuttle system was even centered around the series of turns this year, so that is how I found myself at the attitude turns at the beginning of race two just as Hiroshi Aoyama wrecks.
I’m still going to try to not shoot the series of corners again this season. I have a better chance of photographing a unicorn there than catching another wreck. For those that find themselves out at Miller again check out the clubhouse turn series. I’m really digging it right now, you can stack vehicles like the attitudes or divide the corners and get separate bikes or cars like the photo below. I shot all of these with a 400, but its not a necessity near the clubhouse turns (I had very little room to crop- less than an inch on each side)
Just getting around to posting stuff again, this was from a tasing incident on Monday night in Tooele.
