It reminds me of a post production look that has been done in movie scenes that show dreams.

1.Dirt: If your worried about your camera and everything you own being covered in dirt,don’t show up.
2. Credentials: Unlimited access is key to composing images. Contact your local magazine or know someone who knows someone. Free lunch is provided with the press pass.
3. See Tip 1.
4. Business Cards: Everyone from publishers to team managers are on hand and the event. Exposure is everything.
5. Clothing: With highs of 103 degrees is obvious to wear shorts and a t shirt. Yet wearing the same outfit for the entire 4 days of photographing makes you more recognizable to riders and other photographers that you meet during the event.
6.Pre-Visualize: There are thousands of ways to photograph the numerous lines and features. Pick your areas and produce quality not quantity.
7. Equipment: Two cameras are key. The remote camera is locked onto the tripod with the wide angle lens and can be triggered by pocket wizards. The main body varied from the 100-400 and the 24-105.

If you want to use the Mamiya DM22, you need to show a faculty member that you can:
- Properly insert a CF Card
- Switch the camera on
- Switch the digital back on
- Set the digital back to correct camera setting
- Set the digital back to 200 ISO
- Make a correct exposure with a gray card in the image
- Gray balance camera
- Switch the camera off
- Switch the digital back off
- Remove the digital back from the camera correctly
- Replace the digital back on the camera
As a reminder, the camera will only be available to be checked out for use in the studio at this time.
Photo checkout now has available several new items which may be of use to you. Those of you who have been frequently checking out light meters may already be aware that we've acquired another pair of Sekonic L758s (PDF of the manual is available here), but we've also picked up a couple more basic lightmeters: a pair of Gossen Digiflash meters. These are very small and simple meters, and as such I suspect that some of you will love them dearly for their portability and simplicity, and others among you will regard them with a frothing hatred for their lack of advanced features and basic interface. I would advise having a look at them before you have need for a light meter to determine if it's the sort of meter you'd like or not. The instruction manual is available here (PDF), and of course you can stop by photo checkout to give one a test drive.
Checkout also has a couple new Vivitar 285HVs. These are non-dedicated flashes that can be used on just about any camera with a flash shoe or PC socket... except for that goofy Sony/Minolta "inside out" flash shoe design. These are essentially manual flashes, and though they have some Auto features, they won't give you any sort of TTL functionality, so you might want to study up on the manual, which is available in checkout. I couldn't find a Vivitar-provided online manual for the 285HV, but there is a manual for a prior version (though same model number) located here (PDF).
