Favourites images of 2017 – Behind the lens – Ferrari Trio
So here we are at the final image on my Top 10 favorites of 2017 and we are back at Phillip Island in November.
This is from the Zagame Automotive Ferrari Owners track day.
Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t the best, but that was not going to stop me capturing the event.
So as part of my coverage of the event, during the lunchtime break, we head out on track with three customer cars to capture a group shot of them in action.
The three cars chosen were a Ferrari 550 Maranello, Ferrari F12 and a Ferrari 458 Speciale.
Similar to the way I shot the Mustang Trio image, we have a lead car out in front of the group with me and the video team strapped into harness’s photographing out of the rear hatch. The team from Race Solutions Motorsport were again on hand to again make sure we were all secure in our harnesses. In charge of driving the cars on the track were three of the instructors from the Motokinetic team, who were running the day.
Once out on track, I get the instructors to move between different formations with the three cars.
This one with the 550 in front was one of my favorites, the rain and spray had eased enough to not interfere with the shot. Mind you it was a challenge to keep the camera lenses clean.
It was shot on my Nikon D4s, using my Nikon AFS 24-70mm lens. Exposure 1/250 sec at F11.
I hope you have enjoyed my look back at the year.
I want to thank all my wonderful clients for their support in 2017 and I am looking forward to working together again in 2018.
To my readers, I want to thank you for reading and want to wish you all the best for 2018.
