I have been photographing motorsport for approx 2 years now. I am using a Canon 300V Film SLR camera with a Canon 75-300 lenses. I have recently bought a Olympus E-500 digital SLR, but it has not yet arrived from my supplier.
I looked through my albums recently and noticed all of the cars in my pictures looked stationary, therefore I have decided to play around with the shutter speeds to improve my technique. This goes against the grain as I was always taught that when taking a photo everything should be in focus.
I have a copy of the Motorsport photography book by Tony Pleavin and this has helped me alot.
Here are two of my attempts: -
Photo of Matt Neal BTCC taken at Donington in April 2005
Photo of Ginetta taken at Oulton Park in April 2006.
Please let me have your thoughts.
