I know this is in the wrong section, but under the sharing knowhow - motorsport section, I have only had one reply in the past few days. I was just wanting general tips on Drag Racing Photography. I have left a few previous photos below, but they are pretty irrelevant, considering they were taken with my canon power shot. Anyway, here goes...
It is 1/8 mile street drags, quite a cool setting, a mini industrial area, with the harbour on the other side. Will be using my 70-200, and take the 28-80 kit for a bit of pit action. I have full track access (with safety in mind!) and it is only street drags, so there are cones for the first probably 70 feet or so. So has anyone got any tips advice, eg:
Pan on the burnouts?
Head on or side on?
Wide Angle or tightly cropped?
Shoot one lane at a time or have both cars in the shot?
Stay closer to the start line or finish line?
Also, I may have access to a cherry picker for a couple of hours, so how do I make good use of that?
What will the 70-200 be like, do you think that 70mm will be a little too long, especially when by the burnout pad etc?
Thanks, here are some images from the previous meet (taken with point and shoot)
