Noob question - given the speed of the cars, any special technique you used to lock the camera focus? I assume its very difficult to lock to focus on these fast moving F1 cars, especially if your camera is perpendicular to the car.
Yup i used AF servo to keep track, went for high iso. shutter speed around 1/1600 . White balance daylight and cloudy as light played.
Then second method i used was prefocused at a particular spot wna wait for the car to come to frame.

+1 Lavish_n. I am amazed by the clarity of the pictures and they have come out really great. I too wish to know, Doc, what mode did you capture this? Did you do Photoshopping later after a Multi-Shot burst or you captured this on a single frame. If a single frame, then teach me how to Doc.

Nope not a single frame. it was sequential shots combined on photoshop.

You seem to be seated in the same stand as me and my friends. We were on C Block of Star Stand East 2 on the Row L.

Qn: What lens were you using?

Cheers,
I was on star stand 2 east , L row.seat 21 and 22. i was wearing a red ferrari cap and was using a 300mm canon lens.

When Mr Chandrababu Naidu was CM of Andhra pradesh he had shown interest in bringing F1 to Hydrabad but i guess his govt fell and so the interest along with it. Bangalore was ruled out due to high taxes i guess.

There was a rule regarding flag poles bring not allowed. I left mine back home :(
There were guys with poles there and it was allowed. I missed the opportunity to wave my Ferrari flag.

I feel the entry restrictions should be looked into.
Not allowing bags on a full day event is pure stupidity.
Actually i did not bring the camera on friday practice sessions as i was not sure. then i saw two people carrying slr s with large lens. then i spoke to guard at the gate who told cameras were allowed.

As for the bag , i was allowed after checking. i got my backpack for camera.

Flags brought from outside were not allowed. but strangely flags brought at the merchandise were allowed. i got my force India flag for the race.

But yes theres certain fine tuning in whats allowed and not allowed needs to be done.

How did they distinguished between falgs from outside and flags bought at the circuit ?

PS: I took my flag along with me on all 3 days and they allowed me. It was in my bag though

Same happened with Webber, Hamilton and Alonso.

Then came Schumi, oh boi.!! the crowd literally exploded. He represents Mercedes now, but there were more Ferrari flags & red stuff out there when he waved out. He has actually made RED, the official color of motorsports.

If you don't mind, i shall post some pics here.

Cheers
Yeah there was more or less surprise on schumi s face ha ha ha.. for sure he had no clue that he had so many fan following in India. Last 30 years i guess watching schumi was the moment of my life.

Please feel free to post your pictures, it d be wonderful.

Initially i was irritated as Track Marshals were in the way, but then i decided to make them a part of frame to add more life to it. Guess worked well.

Thats exactly i found that was ridiculous. As if the poles brought from the merchandise would not be used as weapons.

Few people had difference of opinion at the stand with the security

Well captured pics doc. Must have been an awesome experience; wish there was a way you could share all the burnt fuel/rubber/the fumes/the everything else that makes up the F1 circus too.

Great pics sir..!! Each tells a different tale, but I got one doubt here... how did you manage to get such nice shots ? The coverage of the rally is just awesome sir. I just love all of them.
Thank you so so much for sharing. I was waiting for such a thread to appear

+1 to the whole collection and especially to the above sequencial photograph. You were lucky to get a ticket for this stand with full view of the cars.

This was hell of an even, I just loved and and appreciate the efforts and outcome of the effort put in by the organizers.

I am a great fan of Schumacher too

We were just a few seats on the left of you. At a point, I wanted to borrow your len I was using a Canon 550D with 55-250 len, but your pictures have come out really well. I was in a Red T-Shirt and Schumi's Mercedes cap on the Race Day. My cousin was in a Red Ferrari T-Shirt and a Black Ferrari Cap along with me.

Cheers,
Ardy

Dr. Kakkilaya and KPZen, awesome pics there! All of them are wallpaper material.
Doc, lovely way of penning it down as well.
So, who finally has the copyright to these pics? FIA or you guys (individually).

Nice shaps Kpzen and Dr. KaKKilien.

Learnings for next year.

1) Camera's allowed.
2) 18-220+ or 55-300+ Lense required.
3) Yes we always knew it was possible to shoot/catch F1 Cars in motion (all those car mags) but now we know how.

The entire series of guys on vintage cars would make for a nice collection. The marshals are all taking snaps at that time - I guess it is their payback for the service.
