A few weekends ago, there was a cycle race held in Leederville. My brother in law asked if I wanted to have a look, partly as a photoshoot expedition.
The racers were amazingly fit.. and I really envied their bikes! Such slick looking machines doing laps up and down the coffee strip.
I’ve never taken photos of a cycle race, so I was quite confused for a while, wandering up and down Oxford Street, taking some random crappy shots. I decided – I just need to take this experience as an exercise to try things out and so took heaps of photos, and unfortunately, most were duds. I just couldn’t figure out what made a good cycling shot. Luckily, as the cyclists did quite a few laps, I was able to try various things.
Armed with my 17-55 and my 70-200, I tried some panning shots, some zoom shots, etc. Here’s my pick of the better shots of the day.
