The neighborhood bike gang rides again!

A Ben in Motion Tends to Stay in Motion!

After last night’s tennis I was still in a mind to do some action shooting.  Lucky for me I have two perpetual motion objects ready at hand.   I just needed a bribe to get them to ride back and forth on the street while I practiced my panning skills.  Here is a shot at 1/30th and f/22 at ISO 100 in available setting sunlight with the EF 80-200mm f/2.8L at 80mm.  Panning is definitely an acquired skill.  I managed only 8 acceptable frames out of 182 clicks!  Well…to be honest, there would have been more, but my subjects were less reliable than a speeding race car!  Again tonight…just having fun.  Watching these boys takes me back to when I was their age and racing up and down the street with kids, dogs, adults, worms, and anything else I could get to race me!

First frame from a new lens...my son on his bike.

MotoX Ben

This was the first frame with my new 80-200 f/2.8 L zoom.  I remember now why I love this lens so much.  This is my second copy, which I got for a song on eBay.  I sold the original one I had years ago to help finance a triathlon bike project.  I guess it is fitting that I sacrificed one of my sets of carbon fiber race wheels in order to get another of these lenses.  They call this Canon lens the “Magic Drainpipe” and for good reason.  Images are simply sharp, contrasty, and have a certain pop to them that is hard to find even in the current crop of 70-200 f/2.8 L IS lenses.  You’ll be seeing a lot more of this lens in the coming months.
