Canon instructed me not to go into technical details as this was a pro event with experienced photographers, but lean more on my gear. How and why I use a particular lens or when I use what camera. Regardless Canons instructions I did mentioned to the photographers to watch their shutter speeds, as a basic instruction in any sport photography. I was surprised how many blurred photos were presented after the lecture. As Dejan’s fast throttle response during some of his rotations caught a lot of photographers unexpectedly. Don’t underestimate the sport, use a fast shutter speed!
As I saw tire marks from a drift car in the middle of the track, I instructed Dejan to do one of his spinning tricks in the middle of the marks. It works great as a frame for the subject and adds a sense of rotation to the trick. It’s hard to preserve motion to the viewer in a still photo, so any additional help works like magic! Use your surroundings to your advantage. Also I framed the Canon flag intentionally, while it doesn’t pop out much and the flag is mirrored, you can still recognise the logo. And that’s exactly what brands want.
