I wanted to strobe both of those shots, but we were only there for like 40 minutes, and nobody rode for like 30 minutes because we were meeting people from out of town. Then, like good boys, we went for pizza and beer instead of being outside riding bikes in 38 degree weather.

I know I'd rather drink and eat pizza than be outside in the cold... But damn, very clean! Did you use any additional lighting because that looks way too well exposed for 9 pm at ISO 1600?

No, that park is lit by halides on-demand (push button by the "guard" shack). It's not active until about 7pm, which made shooting impossible for a bit since, as you can see, almost everything was backlit or in gross shadows. Luckily, those halides fill the place out pretty well, and I could very well have shot that at ISO 800, but I was just getting used to having my hands in the right places to use the body proficiently. It's a little different than the D300 I had been using on and off, so the ISO button being on the left of the LCD kept throwing me for a loop -- that is, when I wasn't thumbing my nose while trying to adjust it with my eye to the finder.

One or two more outings and I'll be good, it's less of a shift from Canon controls than most people might think, though I find Nikon does a better job placing crucial controls where they need to be (at least for my shooting habits).

yea, i first thought shooting nikon would be a huge pain in the butt cause im so use to canon. but it turns out it actually isnt that big of a shift. i mean once you get over the fact that the left dial doesnt have AV/TV/M/P, the ergonomics is very intuitive to use.

I think the biggest thing for me to overcome is the EV comp direction on the front dial -- I can switch that, but it also reverses the rear dial, which is no bueno.

I did until I exploded my back and had surgery in June, which is why my shooting habits have gone to hell. I sold my BMX to a friend (Terrible One Barcode, sad to see it go), so now I'm sticking to my fixed (2007 Langster) and road (2011 Defy Advanced 3). Actually, since it's gonna be balls cold out again soon, I need to buy a new trainer for winter, as the likelihood of re-injury from falling off rollers is probably pretty high.

As far as BMX goes though, I still like to be a part of it in any way I can, whether it be building wheels, shooting photos or whatever. I think I'll have some chances this winter to shoot indoor parks, so it's probably time to think about getting some flashes or making sure I at least have some radio gear to use if I'm borrowing someone else's.
