Hi Gordon,
Are you going to be putting the pics on the internet ?

Hiya mate, what Camera are you using? Might help with some advice. The best advice is to whip the camera out when it's sunny! And don't be afraid to get a bit dirty in your pursuit of some nice photos.

Yeah, if you get home clean you aint doing it right.

Hi all

Thanks for your replies. I managed to take over 170 pic's on Sunday and i wish i could say that they were all good. Cut over 60 before importing to pc as they were only bits of cars. Jimmy's article was very useful as i would have never used the aperature priority mode without reading this first. I managed to get a few good ones over a jump and a couple of good panning shots where the car was in focus.

I plan to be at most if not all South East meetings this year so hopefully will get better results as the year goes on.

I'm using a Canon D400 with a borrowed 75-300mm zoom. I have to say that after trying to get good pic's of RC racing myself i can really apreciate how great the ones are on here. If much easier with full size cars:)

B & H racing. I will have pics at club meeting on Wednesday.

A friend of mine seems to specialise in taking pictures of me in strange places taking pictures. He has lots of me lying on the ground all over the country and hanging off things to get just the right angle.
