The weekend was far from perfect...heavy rains Friday & Saturday canceled practice & qualifying sessions for all...Usually I spend those times to get in the groove & get my AF settings on point...Without those times, I ended up shooting the race only which led to less than 300 total images & even less rock solid keepers...looking back now, i could have lowered the shutter speed/iso a bit, but with the short time i had to shoot, it was literally run & gun...disappointing for sure


Here are a few of those...

No sir i did not...the 2 publications that got me into Le Mans last month couldn't get em for f1 because they weren't print publications

Main reason why i was shooting at 400/800mm the entire time

liked your flicker shots too. I believe F1 is one of the hardest series to get a credential for.

Great set. What Lens?

Those are really high ISO levels. Did you process those in photoshop ?

ETA: Ah nevermind. I see one of the EXIF reports shows it a 400mm 2.8.

Thats BIG GLASS to lug !

Good work on those pix. But why such a high ISO?

I shot the inaugural texas race for the Dallas Morning News great track. I shoot indy and Daytona now, but Indy cars are

Images were shot with a 400 2.8 with & without a 2xIII

man, the ISO thing...i had such limited time to shoot & i didnt want to waste anytime having to change settings much...so i threw it in shutter priority with auto ISO...that allowed me to just play with the shutter speed while moving around the track...i literally made a hot lap from the mega stage, down around 11, up to 9, then made my way across the bridges to finally turn 19...2-3 laps at each location & off to the next...i didnt notice until today that most of these were at 3200+...i could have easily slowed the shutter down a bit to get that ISO down, but again, with the limited time, I just wanted to make sure i was able to go home with some solid shots...plus, it was a dark overcast from the weather we had over the weekend...SOOC looked pretty good, but a quick bump in LR made em pop

images were processed in LRcc with 0 noise reduction...probably spent a total of 1min on each one & copy/pasted settings on similar shots

nice...i went to the 2012 usgp at cota, at the time i was a full time, 10yr auto mechanic...i borrowed a fuji dslr "type" camera & played around with it...i enjoyed it so much, i ended up ordering my 1st camera (canon t4i) the next week...quickly moved up to the 7D...a year after that race, i put down the wrenches for good & transitioned into photographer...7d to 5d3, now to 7d2

ill be shooting the NASCAR AAA 500 next weekeend at TMS...never been too a nascar race, so im pretty excited...its gonna be a rush being trackside at the 1st one

nice work...you can find my photo page on fb here, https://www.facebook.c​om/GreaseManPhotograph​y/ (external link)

That 7Dm2 works well then, of course that big 2.8 400 helps. Theres no way I would have gotten images that clear with my 100-400 and 7D. Would have been noisy.


Great shots though, I'm just surprised they turned out that well with such a high ISO.

Nice, thanks for sharing these !

Saw the race on TV, it was a good one ! Lots of action all through the field, and Hamilton clinched the drivers championship.


All New Year, All New Sig !
