Here are a few from last week. The street event was a time trial put on by the Reno Wheelmen. You can see the lighting setup that I used on the last photo. The off-road, downhill bikers are friends of Fielding. Both shoots were good times. Click on the photos to see the technical specs.

I dragged the shutter a bit and panned with the cyclist (who was probably doing 30mph). ©2009 Daniel Newton.

    Thanks for sharing the setup Dan.

    I have been wanting to shoot my brother on his racer and with my 2nd flash unit in the mail I will certainly give this a go.

    Ok: Pic #1, yeah dude that’s me, here’s the bike. http://www.flickr.com/photos/24910232@N04/3531681792/ I asked Rich Paul who was taking the pics, on the grade, he did not know. So I decided to search today and found the flicker site first and then your link.

    Awesome pic! Sorry ’bout the gut, really have to do something with that! When I saw your setup as I was coming downhill I went to the drops.

    I have a good Epson printer a 2400, can I get an original? How did the going uphill shot turn out?

    Are you using two SB800s?
