Picture Perfect : Spanish Grand Prix

Whilst this circuit does not lend itself easily to pretty pictures, the garages are great to work in. The morning sun bounces off the freshly painted floors which can reflect into the drivers’ visors, giving them a real twinkle in their eyes. Here, the use of a fixed 50mm lens at a very wide aperture gives a very small depth of field staying sharp on Nico’s eyes but blurring Renault’s very distinctive black and yellow colours.
