VicDrift Practice – 15 June 2013

Here’s some shots from my first VicDrift event. Lots of throwaways as I like the car in each shot to be sharp (most of the time anyway) and at slower shutter speeds it gets a bit spray and pray. A forgiving part of digital I guess. I’m not worried too much about framing each shot, I do try to place the subject in the general quarter of the frame that I’m wanting but typically I’ll just crop it the way I want after.

Full set is here, a few extra details on some images shown below.

I’ve known Jarrod from JRM Photography for awhile now and he had his beast 400mm 2.8 II out there.

Gave it a crack and I can see why its the mother of motorsport lenses. Would love to try this lens panning from a further distance. Super sharp shots!

Threw on the 24-70 for a bit of a wider view and catch both cars in frame. Could have probably cropped it a bit better now that I look at it.

Smoke is nicely in frame in this one.

The whole car is tack sharp in this frame, probably my fave of the day…along with the shot below.

Lucky shot here with the numberplate clear through the smoke…
