Motorcycle Supershow In Toronto

The Supershow fills the whole of the International Centre in Toronto, and 50,000 attendees ( estimated ) fill several parking lots. The attractions include stock, custom and vintage motorcyle displays and a vast variety of parts and accessories and clothing vendors. The hottest displays or course, are the custom bikes graced by some of the most gorgeous ladies seen at a trade show. This model on a Custom Stud bike was shot with a Canon 5D. More at flickr.

Rapid fire shots of Toronto Boatshow wakeboard aerials

I took the Canon 5D down to the Toronto Boatshow to photograph a wakeboard ( the athletes referred to it as wake skate ) demonstration on the indoor lake in the Ricoh center. The lights were not turned up fully, so this was shot at 160th at f2.8 and ISO 1600 with a 70-200 lens. The 5D shoots 3.9 frames per second, capturing the whole flight of the wake boarder nicely. Probably could have gone at a higher ISO and a faster shutter and still gotten useable images.
