KNOW YOUR SHUT­TER SPEEDS FROM YOUR F STOPS

Motorcycle Sport & Leisure - - Test Ride -

Peo­ple are some­times in­tim­i­dated by the tech­ni­cal side of pho­tog­ra­phy and sim­ply turn the con­trol dial and let the cam­era do every­thing for them in au­to­matic mode. But if you are to get good, and most im­por­tantly, sharp, shots of McGuin­ness, Hutchy and co, you have to take some con­trol of your kit. An af­ter­noon spent with a good how-to-do-it man­ual and prac­tic­ing with the cam­era will give you a de­cent work­ing knowl­edge of how shut­ter speeds and aper­tures work to­gether. This is im­por­tant be­cause the TT is one of the fastest races in the world and the big­gest sin­gle rea­son for bad pho­to­graphs of the ac­tion is that the pic­tures aren’t sharp. You need a very fast shut­ter speed – 1/1000th of a sec­ond or even less – to freeze the move­ment and you need to know how to set that for your­self. So dig out those

in­struc­tions and get prac­tic­ing!
