The light’s fan­tas­tic

F1 Racing (UK) - - PARADE -

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.
