EX­PERT IN­SIGHT Back­grounds

NPhoto - - Apprentice -

The big­gest mis­take be­gin­ners make when pho­tograph­ing motorsport is that they for­get the back­ground. A friend of mine used to say ‘Look for the crowd, then shoot any­thing that hap­pens in front of it’. That’s good ad­vice if the stands are packed, as crowds can pro­vide a colour­ful, uni­form back­ground. By con­trast, scat­tered groups of spec­ta­tors, por­taloos and track­side clut­ter are all un­wanted dis­trac­tions.
