One last Supercorss shot from Dodger Stadium. The shot above is a wallpaper version of one of my photos. Although I am a Dungey fan, tough to not give credit to Bubba (James Stewart)…he is the fastest racer these days. Tough to beat. He just won Anaheim 2 this past Saturday and leads the Supercorss points in 2011. I wanted to create a cool wallpaper of JS. What I did was simple…
1) My Original shot 2) In Photoshop CS5 – selection tool to select JS and the bike…then Inverse…to focus on background 3) CS5 - Filter-Blur-Motion Blur to background 4) onOne Software Photo Tools 2.6 for sharpening 5) onOne Software Photo Frame (added the circular texture/smoky edge frame) 6) Added the JS Logo
January 22, 2011was the first ever Supercross event at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, CA. I was lucky to attend and arrived at 12 PM for practice and was there till about 10:30 PM when the race ended. What a great day! My father-in-law and brother-in-law enjoyed their first race ever! What a race it was at nite! I took tons of photos. All from the stands using my 70-200 lens. During the day I added my teleconverter to get the extra reach and shot most at f/4. The stadium shot above was during the LCQ…using a fisheye hand held. A great view of the course! I still have tons of photos to go thru and will just post them as is. It would take forever to re-work them. You can click this link…Supercross and you can see more shots. It will probably take me another 2 weeks to get the rest up! My daytime practice shots were the best. The nite shots using the D300 at 3200 ISO…just ok. Enjoy!
