After a few hectic weeks and countless hours of editing, i thought it was time to shoot something just for the fun of it, so we decided to take our 2 boys off to Queensland raceway to see the V8;s.
As much as i love the races i never actually been to shoot it so it was going to be interesting as i don't normally shoot things that move so fast. after driving for about an hours and parking what seemed to be in a different state we arrived at Willow bank, first stop was the paddock, the area where all the behind the scenes stuff happens ... basically its the garages and trucks that the cars are repaired in and arrive on.
The boys Loved it being so close to the cars that they were about to see on the track, my eldest Aiden was surprisingly more interested then i thought even coming up with the idea of building a go cart, but not just any go cart one that he can race on the track .... ohh boy ... this ones going to be expensive lol.
We then went out onto the track and in good time as the street cars and funny cars came out for a burnout session ...WOW ... extremely loud, Lachlan wasn't really happy with this as he couldn't hear anything Aiden had the biggest smile on his face but still had his fingers in his ears.
Finally we found a place to sit and watch the race right on turn 1, got my camera out had a few quick test shots and it was on as this was my first time took a few shots to get everything right where i wanted it ... even had a few curve balls thrown with the sun coming and going in and out of cloud after a long day and a few good and a few bad shots it was definitely worth it. learnt some new techniques and had a ball with the family at the same time. it was a good release as this week is going to be very big with shoots and Still a lot of editing.
Ii have posted one of the shots above one of my favorites check out the sports gallery for a few others .
