For some more event photography experience I decided to attend the Autosport 2013 event at the NEC, I must say it was a great day. I was there from when the doors opened until they had to kick me out, I made some great contacts in the automotive industry for future shoots and got some great pictures. I made the most of the day by getting there extremely early. Another thing i wanted to try on the day was using to cameras, one with a prime lens and one with a wide, this helped me by cutting down the time I spent changing over lens’s and rummaging through camera bags. One of the problems I encountered was the rather yellow tones on the images caused by the tungsten lighting in the events hall, i did my best to correct this with the white balance and then adding some blue tones in editing.
Another part of the show was a live event with a lot of motorsport action, I had anticipated this and lent out the 70-200 zoom lens from the loan shop, the lens was brilliant and allowed me to get some amazing shots of motocross riders doing some awesome tricks in mid air.
This event helped me learn a lot and see some amazing stuff.
We got some great pictures from the event which you can find in the link at the bottom.
