Picture Perfect : Brazilian Grand Prix

As the F1 season draws near to the end, this shot captures Nico entering the pitlane past the colourful flags of the 21 nations that host F1 races. This photo is taken from the pitwall with a long telephoto lens. By crouching low I’ve created a frame filling image as the R.S.19 comes straight towards me. A shallow depth of field throws the background colours out of focus whilst the car remains pin sharp.
