A couple of weeks ago I (8th-9th of June) I went on a road trip with my fellow #Fueltographer to sunny South Wales. It took us 8.5 hours to drive from London to get there. Mainly due to the fact that there was so many crashes and incidents on the M4. As soon as we got there, it was time to sink a few beers and get an early night as we would need to be at the track early the following morning.
I was rather excited about this weekend for a number of reasons. Chiefly due to the fact that it was due to be brilliant sunshine all weekend! And it was! It hit 26 degrees centigrade on the Saturday!
Other reasons were due to the fact this was a new circuit (to me) and I had some new gear to try out. I had recently bought myself some new Hoya Filters (ND and CPL) as well as getting a new lens, the Canon 70-200mm f/4 L USM – and yes I will be doing a review on this lens at a later date.
There were also a few new drivers which I was stoked about. Above you can see Teemu in his insane Mercedes…this thing was BOKNERS!
I tried some ultra-wide pans (it’s not actually that wide, I think it was at 24mm)
Although I do feel my technique will need to be improved and adjusted to make it work better.
Then it was time to get a little silly. This was shot at 1/5th of a second…
And this was shot a 1 second. I am determined that one day I will nail a 1 second pan.
Anyway, I thought I would share these pictures with you. Keep an eye out for the reviews of the gear in the future.
