To all experienced photogs (which most of you are)
I am looking for tips and suggestions for the upcoming Grand Prix. This would be my first time photographing any racing event.
Location - What is the best location to photograph in your opinion?
Tickets are selling fast. Do I stand a better chance to take photos if I get a grandstand ticket, or a walkabout ticket?
If I do buy a ticket, which position/spot is likely to get me a better view to be able to take clear view photos?
Equipment - body 5DMKII, lens 75-200 2.8, tripod, 580flash. Would this cut it, do I need wider lenses?? I generally shoot on full manual.
Any tips you can give specific to this event would be great.
Any help/advice would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
