AMY SHORE’S FREQUENTLY USED SETTINGS
Panning/tracking shots For these types of shot I’d usually shoot no slower than 1/50, and no quicker than 1/80, altering the ISO and aperture to level out the exposure depending on the environment.
fast pit-lane shots For pit-lane shots I keep my shutter speed super quick, somewhere around 1/2,000-1/4,000 and aperture between f1.4-2.8 to get that sense of madness stopped in time.
at night Nighttime atmosphere can be tough. I shoot wide open at f1.4 and somewhere around 1/80, altering my ISO to the lowest possible I can get away with, trying not to go above 1600 if I can help it.
focus point I use a single focus point as my images can sometimes be very busy, and I’ll want to shoot two or more frames of the same moment but have the control to easily pick my subjects.
Capturing detail For detail shots like interiors, I bump up my aperture to between f2.8-f4. Shooting at a wider aperture can sometimes lose just a bit too much detail in the rest of the car.
raw shooting I always shoot in RAW and with the D850. I decide at the beginning of the shoot if I need to have the images Medium or Large, depending on what the client wants.
