My British Grand Prix (Silverstone) Pictures from 2008 Season

Posted by f1cafe on May 20, 2009


The first F1 race I attended was the British GP at Silverstone in 2008. Those were my early days with my new Canon Digital SRL (EOS 400D) with a Canon 70-300 zoom lens. I did some reading on the Internet about motorsport photography and learned a few tricks on how best to capture these fast moving cars in a entry level SLR.

I am going to attach some of those pictures to this blog entry and you can judge my photographic abilities for yourself 🙂 Post a comment if you’d like to have the high resolution original image.
