    I'm shooting another Busch race this weekend and was wondering if anyone had any ideas or suggestions for creative shots. I'm tired of shooting the same thing and want to try something else. Can anyone start some train-of-thought logic and throw some ideas my way? I'll have access to the garage, pits, track, stands, you name it. Bear in mind that my longest lens is a 300 and I won't be able to set up a remote. Any ideas?

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    well you could always stand in the middle of the track and take photos as the cars come at you.

    If the ground is not too wet, lay or kneel down and shoot with a short exposure. .So you have a piece of the ground on it

    you're very welcome

    I know. I'm going to post one of yours. I won't be able to get that shot during the race because they're enclosed by a wall, but I usually get real low before the race when they're all lined up in starting position. Thanks.
