A night at the races

A night at the races.


Shot at Oi-Kebajo racetrack in Tokyo last year. They hold night races over most of the summer; I’ll be organising a visit here for my students this year; plenty of photo opportunities – the racing, the staff, the punters, the atmosphere. Panning is a technique learned & not forgotten – rather like riding a bike! This was the best image out of just 3 panned shots. Sports photography isn’t always about huge lenses, this was taken on a humble 85mm lens. Just need to know what you are doing 🙂
