You da man!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wish I could take some pics like that.
What kind of camera and shutter speed and stuff you using?
Seeing those 1/8th buggies makes me want one bad!!!!
Saw them flying this weekend at a track and was just amazed.

Canon EOS 20D with a Canon 70-200 USM IS lens. Shutter speed is anywhere from 1/1200 to 1/500 second usually.

Beautiful shots, first class. You might like to try a slower shutter to make the cars appear more animated, but that's very subjective.

i think the cars look very animated, if i am not mistaken your using a mid rage telscopic lens, you should try putting a fish eye lens and getting close if you feel youc an protect your camera body and lens enough.

Got any on-road shots?

A little blur is a good thing, IMO... look at the shots at the bottom of this page at Motorsport.com and notice how much more effective they are at showing movement (than the other three rows of photos):

Thanks for the comments guys. A fisheye lens woudn't work well at all. Reason being you need zoom. With a fisheye, you couldnt get near close enough.

As for on-road, not yet. Maybe sometime though.

I shoot professionally and I can tell you you will NEVER get a race shot like that with a fisheye unless you are standing on the track. And if you do that, you can guarantee yourself a beating from the racers who can't see through you.

The shots you see in magazines like that are staged photos where the photographers are inches away from the car and give a hand signal or nod for the driver to hit the gas.
