Behind The Lens

Location
Miami Homestead Speedway Indy Race In the pits ready to leave
Time
Afternoon race
Lighting
Lighting is tough at most races. I take along a flash for flash fill, for extreme shadow to open up the contrast
Equipment
Nikon D200, Nikon Flash, 60mm Micro Nikon,
Inspiration
I was following the Andretti team and wanted a close up of the driver
Editing
In photoshop I corrected the image and then treated it to black & white with tonal correction
In my camera bag
It depends on the job? I have three different bags that I use. For this job was a medium bag two bodies and three lenses and a flash
Feedback
When shooting the Pro series on racing NASCAR, Indy or E Formula, they have a lot of restrictions. mores so then the average local race track. Take a mono pod, tripods are cumbersome and hard to use most of the time. Long lenses are a must for most of the race. Short lenses are good for in the garage or close up of cars before the race. 300, 400, are a great choice and the faster the better for low light evening and night races. I suggest 2.8 on the f/stop for a fast lens.
