    Hooray! The F1 questions are back
    The threads form last year should be easily available using search function ... the light and the cars are still the same.

    In fact, the pics would look the same too. Just like last year and the previous year.
    Lets continue to do panning shots.

    with everyone trying to take the same type of pics, it will really need some creativity to get going..

    i won't be shooting, cos i will be working at site.. sianz.. maybe i can bring a small compact or PnS to secretly shoot sth while on the job.. or during break.. maybe can snap with the drivers..

    A zoom will be more useful, you might not get to stand where you like.

    Enough F1 for me... unless somebody sponsor me grandstand tickets

    Depending on where you are shooting. If at ground level, get as close to the fence as possible to blur out the fencing. Large aperture medium zoom. If you are shooting from top of stand, then a longer zoom will be okay. The light is quite bright so lighting is not much of a problem. Main problem is getting a good location to shoot from.

    For newbies who have not shot in F1 before, you can try out your camera settings when they start testing the lights a few days before the event.
