Never attended Goodwood during my time living in the UK, but I feel that it’d be something that I’d enjoy, even though I’m not much of a motor enthusiast.
I completed agree you should, its great. I’m not a massive car fanatic (although I love F1), but I found one day wasn’t enough, I want to go back and spend a whole weekend here!
Now I have actually been here, but don’t remember the red arrows being so good the photos make it look amazing
Thank you the blue skies helped and also I’d recommend a good lens for that Canon of yours! 🙂
amazing photos scott. I’m just starting out learning photography and just getting to grips with aperture, shutter speeds etc for different types of shot. What set up did you use to capture the moving planes so well?
Hey Paula, thank you!! 🙂
Well I am no expert, but I have a Canon 70D, it was a bright day so I only adjusted the shutter speed if I remember correctly, and I shot in high speed bursts. The camera adjusts everything else, I only tend to play around with shutter speed unless the conditions are bad. I am still learning too! I did use two lenses though, Canon 15-85mm IS EF-S USM & Canon EF-S 55-250mm IS. I hope that helps, Tracie Travels wrote 5 Photography Tips for Beginners as a guest post, its really helpful
