    Default F1 Photography

    Hi

    I finally attended my first F1 this year.

    Realized that I can't take photographs well as I'm behind the fence.

    Is there anyway to get in front of the fence to take photos?
    Kindly advise as I am planning for next year's f1

    thanks

    Panning (camera) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    everything you need to know.. the rest is practice.

    also, use a longer lens.

    and... you posted in the wrong section. be prepared to be bombarded with nothing related to your topic!

    I assume you mean when the cars are on the circuit .... dont court death

    As Kei has pointed out , use a longer lens, shoot wide open and if your camera body's AF CMI, manually focus farther out where the cars are

    Then pan it .... and viola ! Fences suddenly 'disappear'

    Essentially you have asked two questions

    1) Of technique; and
    2) Of access

    that's what i do... i use manual focus to scope out the spot which i know majority of the cars will pass by on. Not that my cam's AF is lousy, but that's my preference

    get a super long mono pod and raise your camera over the fence . set your camera to interval shooting and hope it has articulated screen to have live view.

    or climb a tree . i heard it is the hallmark of a true pro
