Yesterday was tricky, sun disappearing behind clouds, then suddenly reappearing. I also experimented with shutter speeds in an effort to show movement in the wheels, while at the same time keeping the image of the car in sharp focus. This one was shot at 1/200 of a second, f10,

Nicely done. I am greatly looking forward to this years racing circuit in Ontario!

You'll have fun Art. I enjoy it as it provides something different, something without feathers, to photograph. I enjoy photographing the different courses and after having done it for a few years now, I'm beginning to know the best vantage points accessible without a "hard card" pass. I had a hard card pass for the last two years, but didn't bother with it this year as I never had an opportunity to thoroughly scout the track for the best location as we usually arrived at the track just a few hours before the race start.This year TransAm will be racing at the famous Laguna Seca course in California for the first time. Looking forward to that.

It does add the dimension of speed to the photograph. When I first started photographing the race cars, I figured that a high shutter speed would produce more usable images, but I quickly learned that it froze the wheel motion so they looked as though the car could be sitting still. I found that I get fewer keepers using  these relatively slow shutter speeds, but the keepers are much nicer. 1/160th is about the slowest that I've been able to use and 1/200th seems to be a little bit better.

Ron,

 

You had a media pass and didn't use it?  Why?  :D 

The best vantage points are near the track.  Also, the most dangerous....  <_<

 

If there is a race you want to go and photograph and don't mind writing up a story with some pics, contact me privately.

Art, I had the hard card pass for all Trans Am races. The problem was that we always arrive at the track the same day as the race, within a few hours of start time and I never had an opportunity to scout the locations and usually didn't have transportation to remote areas even if I knew where they were. Occasionally, I'd have use of one of the team's golf carts, but I always felt that I was imposing, using the cart, that might be put to better use by the crew. The other factor was that by using a TransAm photo pass, all the photos that you take of the race belong to the sanctioning body for their use as they see fit. At Daytona this past year, I hit upon a pretty good scheme and it has worked ever since. If I see a pickup truck parked near a good spot, I simply ask the owner if I can photo from his truck bed. I haven't been refused yet.
