Ahh… Another track season is upon us. Time to dust off the big guy (Canon 400mm f2.8 L lens) and head out to the track. This year’s opener was a double with it being on a Saturday and Sunday. It was a bit rough getting back into the swing of things.
As with any other track season, I continue to look for new angles and locations to shoot on the track. I think I found a new angle, but it may be tough on days of variable lighting (patchy clouds). For sunny days where the lighting is consistent, I can put the camera in manual mode and set my exposure appropriately. This is new angle requires shooting against the sky and can throw off the camera’s metering. Using manual mode, I can set the camera to properly expose for the subject. Throw in mixed lighting and I can’t shoot in manual mode anymore. It’s going to be a challenge for sure!
I’ll keep looking for new angles… And saving my pennies for my next big lens…. Canon 600mm f4.0 L….
