This fall I attended my first Formula 1 event at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX. It is a first class track and if you ever have an opportunity to attend an event there, you will not be disappointed. It is a challenging sport to shoot, as the targets are moving extremely fast. It also requires longer telephoto lenses to bring the action in close, which only makes it harder to shoot.
This image behind the paddock between curves 18 and 19 is a good example of using a slightly slower shutter speed and panning with the car to create the blur that gives the sense of motion and speed. I hope you enjoy the slideshow below of more images from that day. Most of these images are not in my print gallery, so contact me if you have an interest in obtaining one.
