Early in the day, I experimented a bit with using a remotely triggered rig. I’m hoping to use this in locations that aren’t accessible to me while the track is hot. This first test didn’t result in many keepers, but learned quite a bit about what I’ll need to do to get the shots I want.
On a different subject… Wind!
Wind was the word of the day for yesterday’s track day. Yes, we stayed dry the whole day with only a few clouds here and there. The big story was the wind, and was it windy.
When using a long lens and trying to get tight shots of moving riders, every little bit of movement of the camera makes a significant change. With the winds gusting, trying to keep riders framed correctly while panning was a challenge.
