When I offered to photograph an indoor karting session a work colleague had arranged for his 21st Birthday, I didn’t realise my aging Canon 400D would be pushed to its limits with such a low level of light. With ISO pushed to it’s max of 1600, widest aperture on my EF 90-300mm lens, and even under exposing the RAW files to increase shutter speed, knowing I could recover some detail back home, I managed to capture more than a few decent images, with a small selection shown below (click here to see the full gallery). As the 85 lap race progressed I used the conditions to get more ‘action’ shots, using motion blur from the slow shutter speeds deliberately. Overall everyone is pleased with the results. Phew!
