I have had desire to get back out and take more picture for a couple weeks now, It was eating at my insides that I hadn't had a reason to take any pictures recently. Originally I was going to try to ride the GNCC dirt bike race at Unadilla, but since going I am glad I didn't. Instead I used it as a time to take photos just for the sake of taking photos and to practice some skills I had been looking at recently. When we first got there it was a mad house, the race had been delayed two hours to accommodate the sheer number of riders that turned out. There was well over 600 riders in the race I was there to watch.
We started off on the hill above the starting line knowing this probably wasn't the best place for photos but wanting to see the madness that was sure to ensue. I am starting to dab my feet into taking Video so I started out with that on the start line. From there I moved over to an uphill corner that was pretty banked, it was where two trails came together as well so I knew there could be some drama. After getting some good shots there and waiting for my friends to go by, I wanted to go find a wooded area to shoot in. So I started walking backwards along the course till I came to a spot that had a couple trees and a small jump. To help with the lower light I used my on camera flash to fill the faces of the riders.
I loved this spot!! I stayed there for two passings of my friends and then decided to get some more video of them coming up a pretty rutted hill. All and All I was very happy with the photos I took at Unadilla and can't wait to get back out and take some more.
