NASCAR Photojournalist for a day – Texas 500 at the Texas Motor Speedway
During this episode, we have an opportunity to be a photojournalist for the day at a NASCAR event. The Texas 500 was at the Texas Motor Speedway, and thanks to Fort Worth Camera, we had the ability to get infield passes and photograph the event. We photographed Danica Patrick, Michael McDowell, and Paul Menard in a pre-game autograph session. We photographed a pre-race concert with Jake Owen along with getting access to a red carpet event with all of the NASCAR drivers walking by. Once the race began, we had a great time trying to photograph the cars flying by. We show you how to master the pan shot, which allows you to freeze the action of the cars, but install a sense of movement by panning with the cars and a slightly slower shutter speed.
