This year the LOORS racing crew got several new television contracts, good for them, not so good for the still photographers covering the series. With all the additional television coverage and safety concerns everyone has been moved out of the infield photo positions meaning we are only allowed to shoot from just outside the track. Don’t get me wrong, I understand the safety concerns and would rather be allowed to shoot from just outside the track then be killed by a truck or buggy flying into one of the photo position.
Having said that, there are some additional challenges to getting good clean shots from just outside the track and with some tracks that challenge is even greater due to very distracting backgrounds and harsh mid-day lighting conditions during the race.
I didn’t say that makes our job any less fun, just makes things a little more of a challenge. On with the results.
