Moto Cross

Returned to MX Academy today for another look at the course, having heard they could be some quad bikes running.

It was a foggy morning; the light was nicely dispersed, but the distance was going to be a bit of a challenge - I late got over this problem with the dehaze tool in Adobe Light-room.

Photoshop - "Out of bounds"

Following last weekends photo-shoot at a moto cross practice track, I had an idea to do a bit of fancy editing.

Not a bad effort, and now I know the basics, I'm sure future attempts will have many improvements.

If you're intrigued, search for "out of bound" or "out of frame" photo editing - there are many tutorials on Youtube,

New Facebook Page

I hope to maintain this blog a little more frequently and rather than clog it up with loads of event photos, I hope to showcase a select few and may expand a little on why I like them and perhaps how they were taken and edited.

Event photos will then be found in Albums over at

Moto Cross

MX Academy was a new venue to try out and being only a 15 minute drive from home, could potentially be my venue to visit if I had nothing else planned - with the added bonus of a butty wagon.

The staff were very welcoming and having signed on, was permitted to venture infield.

There are two courses here: a 6 foot deep sand track and the dirt track. The sand, being elevated allows the photographer to get "under" the track level for those up-into-the face type shots. The dirt track had some good photographic vantage points, but I'm sure a return visit will reveal some more.

A good photo session, made even better by the friendly riders and crews.

J4M54 Moto Cross Practice Track

Having not been out with the camera over Christmas, though I'd make amends with the short drive out to J4M54.

It was colder than I had anticipated so only managed to stay for a little over an hour, but came away with some acceptable shots:

Some excellent rigging opportunities were to be found at the 3rd running of the post-apocalyptic themed festival:

New Car

Of course, if you buy a new(er) car, you have to take a few photos of it.

Here's my (new to me) 2014 Volvo XC60 R-Design 2.4 D5 AWD
