The light’s fantastic
Singapore isn’t the only night race on the calendar now, but its artificial lighting remains state-of-the-art. While it’s a challenge to shoot, it’s also an opportunity to create unusual and distinctive effects.
I positioned myself at the entrance of the Haas team’s garage at the beginning of the qualifying session to shoot Kevin Magnussen peeling out into the pitlane. Using a slow shutter speed helped to create this striking effect, full of energy and colour blurring together to create a dramatic image. You’ve got the green of the Haas brake coolers, the purple of the big TV screen and the white smear of pitlane lights, all contrasting nicely with the car.
