Hi Stephen.
Some cool shots, I’d imagine (based on when I shot model aircraft) that they are difficult to shoot, close and fast!
Really like the “oberto” shot, nicely done.

Cheers, Graham.

Cool shots, Stephen. I especially like the 3 and 5th one.

Very much so. Its a decently lit place, but for the pace these cars go I could definitely go for some more. Id ideally like to be in the 1/1000 range but the light is only good enough for 1/640 or 1/800(on the dark side IMO) at 4000iso(much higher and the noise gets a bit to much for me) obviously all at 2.8. The hard part is getting the focus spot on the cars with them being so small(buggies). Its the most challenging Motorsports subject I do and I really enjoy doing it for the shear challenge.

Cool shots, Stephen. I especially like the 3 and 5th one.
The oberto shot was like 1/3 that turned out from that spot. Its a good thing its all digital these days or that spot would have wasted countless rolls of film.
That racing picture was a good spot, wish I'd had spent more time in that area.

Thanks for the comments!
