Photographing cars

There are lots of opportunities to photograph cars, and there are so many cars in so many situations. You’d think it would be easy…

Lately I’ve been trying my hand at making photographs at Porsche Club autocross events. Good looking cars in a small space, going fast. I have been using my longest lens, my 70-300mm L zoom (big white Canon lens.) My goal has been to capture the driver in the car–to not just photograph the car, but to capture the idea of driving the car in one of these events. For example:

Paul Dodd is always fast!

Click on the image to see it much larger. That the weather was overcast, that the driver is wearing a helmet present some difficulties, but over-all the idea is to make a nice photo of the car and driver.

You can see more photos in my Porsche club galleries.
