Yesterday was definitely not one of my better days in regards to shooting, and mental stability. Joel, an old driving buddy, just received a lime green 1976 Honda CB200, and it was gorgeous. So i whipped out the camera and snapped a hundred or so shots of it, and then when he was organizing the garage we parked his early 80s CB650 next to it and I took a couple hundred more with both of them sitting together.

I did a quick review in the car before we went to a late lunch and was sure that I had at least 5 great shots that I could use and show. We get back to the house and when I plug the SD card into the computer none of the images show up. They all disappeared. The card showed that they were there, but as many options as I change, as many resets as I did, and recovery programs that I ran nothing was able to bring them back. My motorbike shoot was gone.

So while we were at K1 speed, I decided that I might as well get another carting shot in and at the very least try something new; motion capture. Since this was essentially my first time attempting this, and I only had one run group before our staging, the photos didn't turn out so well. But here is the best of them all...

If I learned anything from yesterday: I need to start actively shooting motion capture to be a better photographer, be more precise with how I word things so that plans are not assumed they are known, and be sure to invite everyone in the area (sorry Richard and Jesse).
