Hey Kartman, I did reply then he took a jab and locked. I was unable to get back on till today. I wanted to set record staight on our terms, plus some who read may have not gone back to the post, thus the post I wrote. Thanks Dan
You seem to attract a lot more flak than did I in my heydey, more big brother/police state/corporate liability fears out there now. Does this technique work anymore? I would shoot the "official" with a 35 or 50mm as I whipped out my mini-cassette recorder and started interviewing: What's your name? What's your employee #? What is your supervisor's name? What's his name? Why are you interferring with my work. I am NOT big and intimidating.
Matt, back in the 80's when I shooting SX and off road with Tri-X, folks would think I was a bit loony with shots I'd take with short lenses, esp near jumps. I'd reply that vehicles in the air didn't scare me, it was the ones on the ground that often gave me pause 'cuz no matter the attitude, I knew the airborne vehicles' trajectories. Happy Thanksgiving!
Ah cool, I am pretty good buddy's with the president of the rally in Prescott and he said he thought you had shot it once before. Anyways it should be fun I have been out pre-running the course and their should be some pretty awesome spots to shoot and some scenic stuff as well. Hope it works out for you to shoot the rally.
