D.I.Y. Fisheye Lens

A1GP Malaysia 2008

A few friends and I went to watch the third leg of A1 Grand Prix (A1GP) at Sepang F1 Circuit located near Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). A1GP was dubbed as the World Cup of Motorsports as each car of each team represented by different countries. Malaysia is one of the team. This is the fourth time A1GP held in Malaysia and I went for the inaugural race in Malaysia three years ago. This was my second time watching A1GP LIVE on spot... :D

We went for two days, Saturday for the qualifying session and Sunday the race day. I went for two main reasons: 1) To enjoy the roaring of the racing car. 2) To practice panning technique of motorsports...

bintang...18-55mm is too short for shooting race car from far...you need telephoto lens...maybe 300mm...and panning is important here...only few can use from 1000++ pics i shot... :(

ZzkAng said...
