The very best F1 pho­tog­ra­phy

F1 Racing (UK) - - CONTENTS -

The in­side of La Source, Turn 1 at Spa, is prob­a­bly the clos­est any pho­tog­ra­pher can get to the cars at any cir­cuit we visit. This per­spec­tive is en­hanced by the fish­eye lens I’ve used here, giv­ing a wide-an­gle view of the Re­nault of Nico Hülken­berg, which is less than a me­tre from where I’m stand­ing.

To take this shot, I first panned with the lead­ers, Lewis Hamil­ton and Se­bas­tian Vettel, and then tried to cap­ture as much as pos­si­ble af­ter that.

It’s only af­ter the en­tire field had rounded the first cor­ner that I got the chance to look at the back of my cam­era to see what I’d ac­tu­ally taken; when it’s hap­pen­ing there is just a blur of cars rush­ing past.
