This past weekend, I decided to visit the Honda Indy and continue my exploration of capturing motion. Wow, those indy cars move a lot faster than the cyclists I was attempting to photograph a few days earlier.
I found that I was still able to get some very interesting images at approx. 1/80 sec. The big problem is trying to find a good vantage point to capture them from as you are limited to your space in the grandstand. Getting there early and photographing the qualifying laps etc. gave me better light and a great deal of flexibility to move around my area of the grandstand as most people don't arrive until after noon.
I should have taken along my special device (the name currently eludes me) for viewing the screen display in bright sunlight. It was hard to tell if I was capturing good images at the various shutter speeds so I ended up capturing a huge number of images just to be sure.
Overall, it was a good experience and I captured a lot of good images.
