    panning was mentioned in this thread somewhere. does it mean u move ur lens to follow the car when shooting and hence cause motion blur to the background?
    use shutter priority and set to something like 1/50 seconds, continuous autofocus on car and follow the car with the lens and take many shots and some will turn out fine.

    Hi guys! What is the shutterspeed/aperture you all use to get this kinda shot. It's using shutter priority mainly?

    His photos still have exif data which you can find some important data about how his photograph were taken.

    24-105 lens can be used....just that the cars will be much smaller than these photos you seen here. His shots taken range from 170-300mm.

    all shot using shutter priority 1/50s and he let the camera work out what is the aperture for correct exposure f20-f32.

    just like to know if you use any filter like the cpl filter to make the colours more vivid? Thanks.

    no filters used. but i just bought a nd4 filter to prevent the aperture from getting too small when shooting slow shutter speed in daylight.

    Most people will resize their image down to 0.5 megapixel (800x600) or less to display online.
    When you're dealing with a 12 megapixel source file, you can easily crop the car and still have to resize smaller.
    I will be using a kit lens, 18-105mm lens (since I don't have more zoom lens).
    If you want to take pics of the air show, then surely need better zoom, but for action < 50m away, 105mm is still good IMO

    If you are going i can T-Loan u the 55-250mm if u need although tat lens is nothing compare to other better lens haha, just let me know and will MU once of this dayzz

    Will @@ how
    It's a long 2 day event, you could at least turn up for 1 of the days
    I plan to go both days. If it rains on one of the days, all the better!

    I got grandstand ticket giving me the flexibility to rest somewhere for a while, but will most likely spend most of the time at the barriers for less obstructive view. However, judging by pics i've seen, getting a good barrier spot won't be easy to come by, and you won't be able to come and go from your spot as you please, people all fighting to take shots!

    CPL won't do that much, and I believe the sun must be coming from the side in order to give you that nice blue sky look. I don't believe it will have any other effect on car colour etc (it's just like wearing sun glasses on your camera).

    You can easily select a vivid mode on the camera, or just increase saturation during post processing.

    The tip on the ND filter sounds good though, I think i'll try that, given it's a sunny day

    If it rains the event will be stopped and we'll wait for the track to be sufficiently dry enough to drift on. This isn't conventional racing where wet weather tyres will suffice.

    Last year, we had a helluva fun time at the grandstand avoiding all the water that seeped through the canvassing roof when the heavens opened up. Event was stopped until the rain stopped and the track deemed safe after the pools of standing water was lessened.

    sorry guys, noobie here...
    the ticket is a 1 day pass, but is it transferable? meaning if i can only make it one day can i pass the pass to a friend on the other day?

    for those who went last year, how far is the distance from the barrier/grandstand from the cars? would 100mm lens be enough or 200mm to fill 3/4 of the photo without cropping?
    example this:

    DiGdub's pic shows it as 220mm so that should give you some indication, although we do not know if any cropping was done.

    Tickets are in the form of stubs - they tear off 1 stub per day.

    Last year's event venue was at Changi, this year at Marina F1 Pit so hard to say how close/far the barriers/GS would be from the track.

    If you are new to this (and from your questions, I'm guessing so), don't worry too much about getting that "perfect shot". Just head down there and, in the following order:
    1. Enjoy
    2. Soak up the atmosphere
    3. Smell the rubber
    4. Have fun
    5. Shoot some pics
    (in that order!)

    Too often, we get so caught up in trying to nail that great shot that we totally lose the reason for being there, which is to HAVE FUN!

    The ticket is only valid for 1 day?!?!
    I was under the impression it was valid for both days...
    I just collected my grandstand ticket yesterday, i'll have another look when i'm home. If I knew that, I would have got 2 x walkabout tix instead...

    i don't think i cropped that pic. ya, the venue is different, so hard to say how far the cars will be. the ticket has 2 tear offs, one for each day. i think it should be tranferable as there is no name on it.

    I'm planning on going both days. Saturday will be my practise day, it's the first time i've gone to this event.
    I did go to F1 last year, but shooting through the fence was a total waste of time

    saw the series on your zenfolio, nice and sharp images.
    to experience shooters, what lens would you recommend for shooting using canon 1.6 crop? 55-250, 70-200 f4 IS, 70-200 f2.8 IS or 100-400 IS?
