Anyone going this weekend?

I'm heading up tomorrow for 1st session to have a gander. Always fancied going as the atmosphere looks great at the indoor arena's and with the new Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome just opened in Glasgow- it should be good.

Taking my camera and a couple of lens with me so fingers crossed for a few decent shots.

Not had the camera out for ages so will need to see how I get on. D90 with 70-300VR and 24-70 f2.8 Sigma.

Any tips for settings to consider??

I found at the Olympic Velodrome that it was very well lit, I didn't have to use high ISO which I thought would be the case. I think decent panning shots only look good if you are sitting low. Otherwise aim to get them moving through the banks, as the angles are interesting.

Would post some examples, but haven't finished processing them yet, which is poor as it was ages ago!

Good day out - light was ok, not great so ended up needing to shoot around 640/800 ISO @ 300mm f5.6 - most of the time. D90 appears to have handled that pretty well.

My severe lack of practise and technique have certainly showed up but a good day out all round for £11 entry! Uploading a few pictures just now and will add them shortly. Got a cracker of a shot when the GB crashed out right in front of us! Looked a bloody sore one for sure!
