Good to see ya were up on the shutter and snagging multicar action stuff. Looks good.
I love shooting at Lowes. The Musco lighting so soooo good there that you can easily shoot ambient light with good glass. The distance to track isnt any worse than VMS or SG. And the size of the track lends to a 70-200mm lense. You can sweep the entire turns with that size.
hmm,must be something about Nikon pentaprisms that results in that wierd reverse ghosting ya see in some pics from reflective graphics.
Thanks. Yep, I took position at the furthest point in turn 1/2. The 70-200 seemed to be a perfect fit. My shutter was around 1/320th for most of the night. I got plenty of good shots at 1/250th as well. It's a catch 22 for me. I don't particularly enjoy the feeling I get when I see stop-action racing shots. Yep, the cars usually look crystal clear, which is good, but I lose the sense of motion. I stayed high on the shutter for this entire event and now I wish I would have gone lower, at least for hot laps. Oh well.
As for the ghosting, it's getting to the point to where I will simply stop photographing cars with reflective graphics.
