2011 AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix

The AvD, one of the two big car clubs in Germany, was very kind to give me a media pass and vest on very short notice for the 39. annual Oldtimer Grand Prix. Oldtimer in Germany stands for classic car and not older gentlemen, just to be clear.

I had a blast shooting yesterday. Unfortunately my knee hurt way too much today, so I could”t go, which really is a huge shame.

For the first time I was able to put the 200-400mm Nikkor lens into use from right next to the track. And decided to try a little different thing. Obviously what I see a lot of people shooting at the track and I am also talking about media people is with high shutter speeds. of course it gives you a sharp image, but also a very static, not dynamic one. With a little trial and error and of course the right settings you can get some pretty nice shots showing the cars in motion. I mostly shoot in Shutter Priority when panning with the cars. The most important part is to get the panning speed right and in my experience you always have to be a little quicker than you actually think. So I wanted to try something I hadn’t done before and hadn’t seen to many do so far. In the Yokohama S curve I decided and tried to get the cars, as the tuned in right before they disapear behind the chicane. Not a too easy task as the huge amount of shaky photos on my notebook show, but the ones I got I actually really like. Learned a lot and I know how to approach this the next time, I need to find a bit better angle to have a bit more space and time to pan, but also to get the object you want into the shot.

This a fantastic Event, so much more relaxed than the 24 hour race at the Ring and so many amazing cars, not only on the track but also on the roads and parking spaces, never seen so many amazing cars on one parking area.
