Thread: F1 Photographers

  1. #1

    Default F1 Photographers

    Hi.

    To all who produced splendid shots from the F1, great job.
    My question is, how did u manage those shots without the fence?
    Is it possible to get a pass or something?

    just ignore the comment above me, think he/she probably thought the avatar can replace the smiley

    you need a long lens, stand close to the fence, shoot wide open . hope this help.

    get a telephoto lens shoot at wide aperture, stick your lens close to the fence. you can try it out in the zoo first.

    There is really no way to get close to the fencing as there is a secondary barrier that puts everyone 3m or more back.

    Not in all areas. And it's more like 1.5-2m. And then you need to factor in the distance from the fence to the target as well.

    The guys already said it, long fast lenses. Ideally of at least 150mm and up.

    or you can find a lens small enough to fit through the hole in the fence.

    finding a way to stand this close to the fence will be another challenge....

    During the first F1 people did have wire cutters and were cutting the black covering that was on the fence.

    Have long lens 300mm and above preferably. Shoot wide open,High iso for high shutter sped , use +ev to cover the noise.

    That's what I learnt. But its all theory. Need practice. My skills is still have a long way to go compare to other photography.

    What about panning? i tried panning with 300mm and only caught upclose of the drivers and not the entire car. Cant see the fence though. And should I turn the image stablizer on or off when panning? If on, active or normal?
