It's A Dry Heat...... IndyCar Racing in Texas

The IndyCar race in Texas sure was a warm one, but thankfully, the race itself is at night once the sun has gone down. Shooting a night race can be difficult due to the higher shutter speeds needed to clearly capture a high speed car in an image. Higher shutter speeds mean less time for light to enter the camera, and at night, this is even less ideal. You'll find most of my favorite photos from this race are during the day time practices and early evening. From a creative standpoint, it was nice to have some shooting using that "golden hour" lighting. By 8:00 PM, I'm normally leaving a track for the day, not shooting the green flag!
