Well, if there's anything one can say about life.. it's that it can be very unpredictable! A couple of weeks back, I was invited to shoot Kyle Busch during his race at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA. Ironically, I was born in Fontana, and quite frankly, never expected to return there. But here I was, in the pits photographing one of the top NASCAR drivers of our time. My comfortable realm of 30 second long exposures was not going to cut it here. I learned very quickly that to capture a guy that is moving at 200+ mph.. I was going to have to increase my shutter speed to the tune of 1/5000. To compensate, I also raised my ISO into some uncharted territories. In hindsight, I wish I had brought my second body as the downtime between pit-stops was just as fun to shoot. But.. it required some quick setting changes in between. I can't thank KBM, @Pelican_Life and Buggy Whips Inc enough for making this unexpected dream come true!
