My passion is Motor Sport Photography - do other stuff for fun as well.

This year did my first Motor Cycle race at Silverstone - was bored on a weekend and took a trip to Silverstone.

Here are some for viewing:




A couple as well from last years British GT:



Comments and questions welcome :)

Hi Private on Parade, those photos are great!

The obvious question is what equipment did you use, and what technique? It looks like you've gone for a relatively slow shutter speed and followed the bikes or cars as they've gone past in order to blur the background.

I've tried this at a few motor racing events and found the shutter speed, lens focal length and distance from the actual vehicle all make a massive difference, not to mention where you get them on the track. Do you have any tips on these, along with suggestions for focusing?

I tell you what though, I don't think I've ever seen a higher concentration of DSLRs in one place than I did one day at Brands Hatch!

Excellent photos. :D

It would be great if you could post some advice on how you took these, (settings, lens choice etc?)

I always struggle with taking photos like them. :roll:
