Lovely jub­bly

F1 Racing (UK) - - PARADE -

At ev­ery grand prix there is a plat­form built for 40-50 pho­tog­ra­phers to stand on so we can cap­ture images of the driv­ers lift­ing their tro­phies and celebrating on the podium.

To ac­cess the plat­form in good time, we have a spe­cial pit­lane tabard, but we still need to en­sure we get our po­si­tion early at the head of the queue.

The plat­form is quite high, so we’re nearly at the same height as the podium it­self and for this par­tic­u­lar shot of Daniel Ric­cia­rdo celebrating his Chinese GP win, I de­cided to fit a larger 500mm lens.

By shoot­ing with that lens, it tight­ens the field of view and the com­pres­sion gives this nice ef­fect with the cham­pagne.
