Photographing race and rally competitions is not always as easy as it may look despite having great fun and getting the chance to work in an inspiring and very familiar environment. It may be a daunting challenge to be able to get great pictures at the end of the day and at the same time not expose yourself or others to anydanger.
The most important thing is to make sure the car is sharp in the picture, it is the one that should be in focus, while at the same time it should appear that it is in motion. You can see in the picture that the rally car is going at a very high speed. To succeed in this, you have to pan with the car and have a slightly longer shutter speed than you usually have in other sport photographs.
