BMW R1200GS and Smith Loop Road

motorcycle-101First – a big “thanks” to all the folks that have reviewed and linked to Camera47 this last week – including Scott Kelby, Matt Kloskowski over at Photoshop User TV, 1001 Noisy Cameras, and the nice folks over at Blackrapid.

And speaking of Blackrapid – get over there and check out the new RS-4 which looks like it will start shipping in early December.  If I’m reading this correctly – it will be very similar to the RS-1 (lightweight and low profile) but it will include a small zip pocket to store a couple of cards.motorcycle-102

 OK – the BMW R1200GS and Smith Loop Road.  It was Jeff’s new ride on a hot August day and a lot of “Hey, can you ride that curve one more time?”  I’m very thankful that Patagonia makes some sweet synthetic shirts. 

Something different about this shoot – that I’ve only done with this shoot – is that I tried to capture reasonably fast action using RAW instead of JPG.  I had my reasons at the time – but, as you might imagine, on the 20D, it wasn’t writing to the card very fast.  And the lens?  The 70-200 f/4L. 

So, check out a few from the day and let me know what you think.  -Jonesmotorcycle-103

  1. Great shots, great blog. Love the first shot, the crop on the helmet and the bike make such great tension in the shot.

    Beautiful stuff, thanks for sharing with the world.
