Hi, here's some I took last week. For this shoot, I tried to capture the drivers in the background. I think those types of shots can be very captivating. But I wasn't very successful...only picture #2 came out decent with that effect. I'll try again next week

As ever some great shots and a huge step above what is generally seen. Number 2 has worked really well as it gives some context and a feel of size, I also like number 5 as it has another car in the background.

Thanks...my goal is to concentrate getting people in the background of the pics, especially the drivers.

Multi-car shots are also nice...but its kind of hard since the speeds of the cars are insane.

As a radio controlled racer myself and vivid photogragher, i agree these speeds are insane and trying to keep up with them with a camera is a tough job... can i ask what gear your using?. At this stage i'm using a sony H2 but looking toward a nikon dslr along with a high speed lens, awesome pics

cheers

Thanks!

Currently I am using a Canon 20D and Canon 70-200mm lens.

On a cropped sensor camera, I think the 70-200 range is perfect for outdoor rc racing.

very well done as usual. 3&4 are definitely my favorites. You gotta love dirt flying in any sport
