Archive for the ‘BTS’ tag
MelbS15 is a forum that I started for car enthusiasts, mostly owners of the Nissan 200SX/Silvia S15. A fellow member,
Manny Su – Had arranged with Tampered Motorsport to have a bunch of us go up there and battle it out on the track.
3:45AM – Alarm goes off… Yep must be another track day. Lucky I’m not driving this time around! I had the luxury of being a passenger in the back seat of an STi.
Stayed until the last session, didn’t leave till around 5pm which is pretty late. Was unfortunate to hear about all the Highway cops out on the way back pulling people over.

Took a bunch of photos throughout the day, and they speak louder than words..so let’s get onto it. One some of the shots I’ll write a little Behind The Scenes (BTS) blurb with a little bit on the why’s and how’s.
Winton veterans Vu (Gold/Black S15) and Manny (Cherry Red Chasers S15) battling it out.
BTS: 1/60 @ f9, ISO 125 – Since these two are always pushing each other, I was looking for some different angles to try and get a shot with both of them in it..esp when panning.
BTS: 1/640 @ f2.8, ISO 250 – Not panning this time, so upped shutter speed to try and catch some cool little details. In this shot, you can see the outside rear tyre sidewall flexing through the corner and the car’s lean throughout the corner.
Vu in his track beast with a very unique gold/black paint job. Passenger using the rollcage as jesus bar..
BTS: 1/125 @ f4, ISO 100 – Mixing up where you stand is important to try and get different angles. There were basically no one at this part of the track. Due to the location, didn’t need that slow a shutter speed so panning wise its actually quite fast.
Ian having a little run in with the dirt.
BTS: 1/40 @ f8, ISO 100 – Gotta make sure that finger is ready to up your shutter speed if you see an ‘incident’ – In this instance I decided to leave it super slow and see what I could grab of this car coming off and kicking dust/dirt up everywhere!
