I was out again on Sunday trying to take a photo of model cars racing. Yet again the wee blighters stumped me by being too small and moving too fast.
In no particular order I tried
- Pre-focusing on the track
- Using a really fast shutter speed
- Using continuous shoot mode on the camera
- Demanding my brother throw himself onto the track to make the drivers slow down
The first three had marginal successes. the last one, well let’s just say the tire tracks on his head look well.
One shot I did get that I kind of liked was this. A little HDR to make it “gritty”.
(f/8, 1/60sec, 55mm, ISO-200, 15/06/2008)
And yes, the car was stationary at the time….
