Le Mans 2013 pit day Street Style review

This year at the 24 hours of Le Mans race in France I was ready for my panning shots of the cars racing and you can see my review on my technics, plus view more photographs by clicking on the links.

On the Friday before race day they open up the pits for viewing. Also, this year they put previous winning cars along the track going up towards Dunlop corner, so a whole day of photography was ahead of me.

Along with taking photos of the cars this year I also tried to employ a kind of street photography style. I'm not a confident street photographer, so below are a couple of street style shots from pit day. Don't know if it works but I need to get out more and pursue this side of my photography.

My gear for this was a Canon 60d , Canon 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM with a 550ex flash with a Canon CP-E4 battery pack. I took the flash this year because lots of the pits are in shadow and you need to use the flash for fill plus lighting.

I turned the photos Black and White in Lightroom 4..
