Hi Eric, thank you for the kind words. I really enjoyed shooting these, and agree that the D500 is a great tool. I'm glad many Cafe members are enjoying the images.Hello, you`ve a great job in my eyes. Most of the images are stunning in light and motion/emotion.
It was a pleasure for me, looking and reading this thread. and for sure, the D500 is a good tool in your hands !!
Thank you Nick. That is the challenge with photographing motorsports: Attempting to convey motion with a medium that freezes moments in time. It's a challenge, but one that I personally love. I'm pleased with these images, and appreciate the feedback from Cafe members and photographers that've been at this far longer than I.While I'm not in to car pictures and motor sorts, these are fabulous! Nice variety of styles, great action and you've captured the motion so well.
I was a bit of a motorsports fan in my teens, and the love of a beautiful vehicle still catches my eye, so I would probably love to try shooting at a race. Keep up the good work!Thanks Ken. Yep, the D500 is a fantastic camera. All of these images were taken from general spectator areas, no press pass at all.
Thanks Ken. I love being at the races. The look, sound, and smell of the cars is invigorating. Trying to capture them in an image while conveying a sense of speed and atmosphere is a good challenge!I was a bit of a motorsports fan in my teens, and the love of a beautiful vehicle still catches my eye, so I would probably love to try shooting at a race. Keep up the good work!
Haha, thanks Bill. Yeah, no model racing for me. I prefer the real ones that make a lot of noiseI didn't know what to expect, as I had never heard of Petit Le Mans. First thoughts were it was a model racing set ... Boy, was I wrong and boy are these good!
I especially like all the panning shots - great job.
Thank you. COTA is tough to shoot at though. Catch fencing everywhere, HUGE run-off areas, etc. All the downsides of a modern "Grade 1" FIA circuit.Great stuff!
Reminds me that I need to get to COTA in 2019 more often!
Thank you SalExcellent shooting!
Thanks Rick, I appreciate it!Fantastic shots, all of them!
