|Photographic Technique: The camera was set
at a "25th of a second" shutter speed with the lens aperture set to f8.
Also, a Canon 540EZ flash was manually adjusted to 1/2 power output to
"fill" the shadow area of the motorcycle. The shot was exposed on Fuji
Provia III F 100 ASA transparency film. The technique is to "pan" with
the subject, hoping to hold sufficient focus, while recording a blurred
background. Needless to say, this is a "trial and error method" which
sometimes produces remarkable results.
Equipment Used: Canon EOS1n, mounted to a "28 to 70 mm f2.8L Canon lens", with a Canon 540EZ flash attached.
Bike and Rider: This "state of the art" motorcycle is a '98 Yamaha YZF R1. This 140 hp superbike is capable of speeds in excess of 180 mph and should be considered "armed and dangerous"! It is owned and ridden by Chris Thompson (aka Sid-Man), an avid rider/racer and member of the Intrepid Cafe Racers, and the Western Eastern Roadracing Association (WERA).
