This photos is of my grandson racing his KTM motorcycle. He likes to see photos of himself airborne.
Because of the speed of the subject, the autofocus of my camera tends to get “confused” and hunts for the subject until the motorcyclist is gone, and I miss the shot.
I have found that it is much easier to get photos of this type using manual focus. I typically prefocus on a particular place on the track, than wait for him to come into the frame.
