Nice low down angle. I took a ton of Go-karting photos the other weekend and found that unless someone had the back-end right out or were mid-air, there was no feeling of any speed. Seems like you've got the same

I agree with Red - good to see a low angle.

Did you try any panning shots? Sadly, in these shots the karts look as if they are parked.

Also, the very dark backgrounds make the use of flash seem somewhat harsh - perhaps it would be better to expose a little more for the ambient light.

This looks tough to shoot though - I don't envy you!

I like the photo's, but there isn't any movement, or blur to the tires.

I agree, next time i will shoot with a lower shutter speed to try and get some blur out of the tires. The problem being the necessary use of the flash is going to stop the action anyways. Any good ways to get around it?

I have never shot go karts indoors before (or at all).

Most of my shooting is cycling based.

Bias your exposures a little more towards the ambient light... then you'll show some more motion in the images... try setting your camera an flash manually rather than relying on the camera's metering...

Th eproblem was I had to stop down ALOT due to having a 380 ex flash. I can't manually control the power. I used -2 FEC as well, this has been an ongoing issue with having a low budget flash. When i can afford one I will probably pick up a 580ex, but in the mean time I have to make do.

I've found that most karting centres have a wide opening along one wall. Try to position yourself close to that, but not facing it. Also, a wider appeture with a slower shutter speed should give you some action feel, a good amount of light, and a nice shallow DOF that focuses on one kart

I know that this is a somewhat Old thread... so I apologize for digging it up...

If you have a Tripod and the room:

But something that may work, use a slower shutter speed and bigger apature. Focus on the Kart and follow it while the photo is being taken. I dont know how good the lighting is, but forego the flash and try something like f3.5 and a 1" exposure and work from there. It will probably be overexposed and the speed streaks a bit too long at that length, but its a starting poitn, and you should get some motion blur in the background while keeping the Kart in focus. This will probably take a lot of practice ( I haven't really perfected it either ), but once completed, provides an astounding feel for the speed.

The colors look great in those for being so dark. I can barely tell it was done using a flash. And in general, I hate the way flash makes photos look; I'd much rather use a fast prime indoors or in low light.
