I managed to capture both the rider and his full shadow as he rocketed out of turn one.
Summit Point Raceway, West Virginia

Camera: Olympus E-1
Lens: Zuiko 50-200mm f2.8-3.5
In camera Jpeg, no post process, no crop

I have a passion for capturing the true reality of the moment. Shooting with 35mm film and digital capture in an analog style to bring home that pure beauty.

    Cool! So, do you know the guy who said you couldn’t take any of these? :) John

  • He is one of the photographers at a local camera shop that I visit. They sell all of the top brands but, he didn’t feel in his opinion that Olympus was suited to this type of photography. Autofocus speed, focus tracking and lock, the lens uses a core motor and not a ultrasonic type, metering, frame rate and so on. If you know how to use your equipment then you will get a great result.
