In the af­ter­noon we made our way to the end of the fin­ish­ing straight to shoot some wider shots. The aim here was to cap­ture the start of the race, be­fore all the cars had be­come strung out, and to in­clude the start line and the pad­docks be­hind to pro­vide a bit of con­text and a sense of place. I set an aper­ture of f/5 on Adam’s 70-200mm f/2.8 (see Killer kit #01), to en­sure the whole of the lead car would be in fo­cus, and fired off a burst of about a dozen shots, but this one stood out – it’s well­framed, the lead­ing cars are nicely sep­a­rated as they round the first cor­ner, and the sweep of the track leads the eye from the start in the top left to the lead­ing car in the bot­tom left. The fact that it’s the most colour­ful car on the grid is the icing on the cake.
