Los Angeles, CA – James Stewart

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

Thats it!   Pretty easy!   Have fun!!

Los Angeles, CA – Supercross at Dodger Stadium

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!
