JOR­DAN BUT­TERS: This proves the im­por­tance of fram­ing and good tech­nique when it comes to tak­ing mo­tor­sport im­ages that stand out. Shoot­ing from spec­ta­tor ar­eas presents a chal­lenge ( turn to page 44 for more ad­vice on this), but Si­mon has used his po­si­tion­ing to his ad­van­tage. By find­ing an el­e­vated po­si­tion, and shoot­ing over the top of the crowd us­ing a slow shut­ter speed, he has trans­formed a messy fore­ground into an at­trac­tive blur. His fo­cus­ing and pan­ning tech­niques are good, so the lead car is rea­son­ably sharp, rac­ing away from its com­peti­tors. By in­clud­ing the spec­ta­tors and with con­sid­ered com­po­si­tion, Si­mon's shot is an eye- grab­bing one that tells more of a story than a straight- on ac­tion shot.
