Hello all,

Yesterday I was invited to come along to a media event run my MSVR which allowed me to get track side for the first time since being here, which also allowed the company I'm working for access to gaining new contacts and allowing us to expand into other events over the next year.

I took most of my kit with me so the lenses I used was 70-200 2.8 IS II and a 300L f/2.8 IS with some extenders all Canon.

I used shutter speed from 1/25th to 1/500th for the more head on shots.

If you have any questions or see something I should do differently post up

#1.


#2.


#3.


#4.


#5.


#6.


#7.


#8.


#9.


#10.

Also I should note I mainly shot at 70, 140, 200, 300 and 420mm as I didn't quite need 600mm for around the track even with a full frame camera.

G'day Simon,

A good low angle, nice sharp images and good panning with slow shutterspeed.

My Fav is #3 with the B&W Audi, looks really good Poster Perfect.

Try doing #4 in the same PP as #3 and I think that it will also jump off the page.

Good Work, keep it up.

Regards,
Craig

Yes the B&W Audi does look nice in that low down shot with the editing treatment, I'm glad you like it as well

I've had a quick edit at #4 to make it B&W and this is what I've come up with
The settings for this btw if anyone is interested is ISO 50, 420mm, 1/320 at f/4 taken with a 1D mark III.



I'll be posting up quite a bit of stuff this year as not much has been happen in the last few months here for me.

G'day Simon,

I do like the B&W version better than the colour version of #4.

Can I make the suggestion of using the Adjustment Brush and lower the exposure on the door on the car behind Audi here to help make a little more seperation and using a tight radial filter or adjustment brush to bring up the exposure on the Audi up a little more by about a 1/4 - 1/3 just to make its darker areas stand out just a little more from the road.

Other than just a possible little exposure tweak I love this shot.

Regards,
Craig

G'day Simon,

Looks much better, the Audi is no longer competing for attention of the viewer, yet if you look around you can still see other details.

Craig
