At my house, we decided to hit up some trails and drops. The entrance to the freeriding area is a steep 20 foot roller to a ladder bridge across a river which has yet to be built. The entrance to the downhill trails is a steep 10 foot roller to a brook that flows when it is raining and the trail has also yet to be completed too. By next season you will see some more pictures and stuff. 8-)

One of the spots with very many lines to take. The DH trail leads to this area and there will be more downhill stuff from here.






'Saucy on the drop to Uphill landing ---hard to see that it is uphill in the photo but it really is :lol:




Me on one of the many rollers there. It took Bill 4 tries to even get me in the picture :shock:




Steep roller where the DH trails splits-Bill opts to take the steep way.





Bill coming out of one of the fast trails:







Cool looking roller photo:

In most of your action pics you seem to be trying to capture the rider and the terrain. If you cannot adjust your shutter speed then you should either train the camera on th rider or the background. When you try to get both with slow shutter speed you get both blurry. Bare in mind that I am talking about the motion not the focus. Seconed to last picture is pretty solid.

i agree that the last roller shot is the most successful.

but yeah, do decide if you want a shot
where everything is frozen in time..
(very high shutter speed, no need to pan, just point n shoot)
or a more emotional speed line shot..
(average shutter speed, panning the camera)

yes, the speed line shot will blur the background
like robstercrw said.

but just look at that last roller shot.
it looks really good.
i especially like the death grip dedication of the rider.
that's the way to ride.:thumb:

Thanks for the tips and comments guys. The thing is, it is just a regular point and shoot camera...maybe this winter I will invest in one where I can get HQ shots and have the adjustable shutter speed. I found my old 35mm camera but the pictures now come out too dark... too bad it doesn't work the way it used too.

on the 35mm the pics are comming out dark cuz your not using the light meter to the right or left while looking through the veiw finder. Make shure it is in the recomended numbers, or the pointer is in the middle. ajust the numbers or pointer by turing the ring behind the focus ring(the F stop). keep the shutter speed high (500 or 1000) but keep in mind this means that you will need alot of light to keep the pointer in the middle. Keep this in mind while taking pictures. Hope this helped.
