Thanks for all the tips guys!|
For a first stab at motorsport photography I think we did OK.
Here are the shots from the weekend
The seats we had for race day at Becketts were excellent with a clear view of the track and enough space to do some panning. We also went to Woodcote which was alright and the International Pits Straight which was a bit dull.
The suggestion to dump the monopod was a good one, there wasn't really enough space to use it in the stands and carrying it around was a hassle.
Had good results at both 300mm and 420mm (+ DX magnification) with it being easier at 300mm to frame shots.
Most shots were taken at 1/1000 f4 - f5.6 with the panning shots not going much slower than 1/320. The 300mm f/4 Nikon lens is very nice.
