    Default Need advise on how to improve F1 shots using Nikon D60

    Newbie here need advise/help on how to improve F1 shots using Nikon D60, thanks in advance.





    couldn't get a clear shot, had to shoot thru the fence
    the shot was taken hand held with Nikon lens 55-200mmVR, i did a pre-manual focus to about in front of the "50m" sign & took the pics.
    can advise on how to improve the shots? should have used a tripod/monopod? 70-300mmVR lens? use teleconverters?

    It's ok. Most people have to shoot through the fence anyway.

    Maybe you shouldn't have pre-focused on the "50" sign. Select an AF point, then half press to track the subject. Can use AF-S or AF-C, since personally I don't see the difference.

    Once you pre-focused on the "50" sign, only subjects that are of the same distance will be focused. So obviously any car that appears closer or further to you, than the sign, will be out of focus.
    The best things in life are free.

    No point using TC on a 70-300 VR. Image quality will be degraded and you also will be forced to use smaller apertures. Possibly can't focus on your D60.

    Don't worry. Until the next F1 in SG TS can have plenty of time to practise. He can start by standing beside the road and shooting taxis buses and cars and motorcycles driving past.
