Into Depth

Inside the wire.

It had to happen at some point. I have had my first opportunity to shoot pictures from inside the wire. No obstructions, new angles and access to all the picturesque goodies just throwing themselves towards the camera. It was so easy, I couldn’t believe it! Wasn’t really, was it? No. This sudden, new found perspective…

History for a day.

I had not visited the Silverstone Classic until last week, although I have seen and heard plenty about it. A weekend of nostalgia, celebrities and racing around the international circuit in vehicles that really should be in a museum. But these machines were built to race and that what the Silverstone Classic is all about.…

A Classical Afternoon.

The Classics on the Common is an annual event local to me. I’ve visited a few times to check out the handsome quantity of cars that drive all over the local green and generally cause a sizeable commotion. It’s well worth the visit if you are into your vehicles; the selection on display is always…

Max Attack

It’s a Monster.

I love Formula One. Absolutely love it. Every race, we turn on or tune into the action to witness another selection of prestigious laps from the motorsport calendar. Arguably, it’s the pinnacle of certain technologies, combined by some of finest minds, then piloted by the most talented drivers around the best circuits in the world.…

300 Prime Examples.

A few years ago, I made a decision to hire a lens that was far to advanced for my ability with the camera. It was at the 2015 British Grand Prix, and following some advice, I made the bold decision to hire the monster that is a Nikkor 300mm prime. I had no idea what…

The Fury

Stop Trying Too Hard.

I had a good day on Sunday at the Silverstone 500. In fact, this is one of the best days I’ve had shooting from behind the fence so far. I can’t explain why, nor am I totally pleased with the results (for which I shall explain) but for the first time in a long while,…

The Blank Canvas.

Some say that a blank canvas is the way to find true creativity. A way to let your mind run free without constraint or manipulation. It allows you to utilise whatever tools and media you want, to make the most of the space and apply your ideas in any which way you see fit. It’s…

Zero Chance

Changing My Mind.

Experiments are often a good thing. They can test you in both knowledge and capability. They make you step out of your comfort zone and help you think a little more. I should try experiments more often. If you are a regular reader of this blog, then you’ll have no doubt experienced the frustrations I…

Postions Remain

Craving Variety.

Another weekend and another 12 or so hours spent wandering the gravelled, wind blasted spectator areas of the Buckhamptonshire border. The promise of a cracking weekends photographics boded well; a monster grid was on offer for the Blancpain Endurance and 55 fast moving subjects for photographic interpretation over three hours of racing, not forgetting practice,…

Too Many Frames

A Blurred Background.

Somebody once told me that blurring a background doesn’t make a motorsport image. I laughed at that statement. Some of the most inspirational motorsport images I’ve seen have been blurry. Now I may have taken it out of context; this worldly advice was passed over on the wonder that is Twitter, where context and tone…
