Great set, number 2,8 and 7 standout for me, must have been a great day out in terms of weather, lighting looks perfect.

Great work!

Did IMSA reduce the number of media credentials? Seemed to be a significantly fewer number of persons on the other side of the fence this year.

And I second the HOT comment. It was scorching.

Honestly not sure. There is talk of that every year. I have had a Grand-Am & ALMS Hard Card and now IMSA Hard Card for years.

The international contingent has all but vanished. Many overseas publications are contracting work, or buying photos from others.

Halston,

Hope you don't mind but I have a few basic exposure questions.
I actually have done nearly 100 trackdays over the years so I am familiar with that aspect of what you are covering.
From a photography perspective, I shoot weddings and ice hockey so that is my background.
I looked at your flickr data and you certainly do use a large range of settings which was very interesting to look at.
If you don't mind, could you give a real basic of how your approach to camera setup and setting.

Do you approach it from a Shutter Priority perspective mindset? -i.e.:
- panning 1/20 - 1/30 lots of blur
- 1/100 - little less blur
- 1/640 - 1/1000 freeze action

Also noticed you use ISO 50 on the 5D3 - do you do this solely to get low SS for panning shots?


many thanks and really enjoyed the pictures

Paul


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.
