NHRA
« on: September 27, 2013, 10:45:48 PM »
I'm at an NHRA event for the very first time.  Rather challenging.  The car in this pic was probably doing 250+ mph when it passed me as it accelerated to around 312 within a couple hundred more yards.  Tough to pan and get tack sharp images, especially after dark.  Shot with a 5d Mk3, 70-200 2.8L II, 70mm, ISO 10,000, 1/1250 sec, f4.5. I normally shoot RAW, but I forgot that I had shot some images in JPEG yesterday and forgot to set it back to RAW. this image was straight from the camera with minor cropping. 
5d Mark III, 7d Mark II, 24mm f/1.4L II, 24-105 f/4L IS, 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, 100 f/2.8L IS macro, 135 f/2L, 3x 600EX-RT, ST-E3-RT, EF 1.4x III

You did good.  My first time at the start  line was an eye opener.  Besides the insanely loud 8,000 hp nitro dragsters, the vibration was so extreme it was hard to stay in the viewfinder.  Honestly, I don't know how the camera and lenses stay together!  Night shooting is a test of will.  I was all over the exposure settings as the sun set.  Once the darkness sets in, exposures settle into a narrower bracket.

This is what it looks like when a dragster explodes.(coming into the frame)  The blast blew out the shot a bit- the crowd was well lit though!
