F1 from the cheap seats at Silverstone
« on: July 12, 2015, 11:00:53 AM »
Hi all,

I hit Silverstone for the formula one the other weekend, it was very bright for the majority of the weekend with only a little rain on Sunday to help the photography. Here's a small set, all shot from general admission through the obligatory wire fencing.

Cracking shots! Particularly like 2 and 7. Better than some of the pro shots you see. Did you have any problems with finding gaps in crowds etc to shoot?

Were you hand holding or using a monopod? Really good panning at that shutter speed.

Thanks everyone for the positive feedback, really appreciate it :) It was tough to get in position with it being so busy, but not unmanageable. All shot with a Monopod too.. it makes a big difference to my keeper rate and doesn't tend to get in the way all that much :)
