'King of Formula1 Photography' Darren Heath

January 3 2012

Want a job as an F1 photographer? According to ‘King of Formula1 Photography’ Darren Heath who traverses from Monaco to Abu Dhabi to capture the dizzying excitement of the races, you will need sharp elbows to fight off the dozens trying to get the best shots of that race. Learn Darren’s tips on panning; best shutter speed and firing mode; dealing with 'unsavory' F1 security personnel, and stabilizing monster 600mm lenses amid the fiery atmosphere of one of the most exclusive motor sports.

Darren's Tips
1) Rule of Thirds. The rule of thirds is a compositional rule of thumb in visual arts such as photography, painting and design. The rule states that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts (as per my examples) by two equally-spaced horizontal lines and two equally-spaced vertical lines, and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections.
2) Don't just take a picture, make a picture. What I'm trying to get across is a sense that when one takes a photograph try to think of all the reasons one is taking it and how one would like the end viewer to see it and their reaction to it. All photographers are in essence trying to create interest and excitement for the person or people who will eventually view the image so don't just shoot, shoot and shoot again without really giving some thought to the picture you wish to achieve.
3) Using light effectively. 'The importance of light and having the patience to wait for it' is really something of a mantra for me. It goes hand-in-and with my two previous tips and when all three are combined a winning shot should be the result. Think about the position of the sun, the time of day, the track the sun will take across the sky, the subjects position relative to the light, lens, flare, shadows, back-lighting opportunities, aperture and shutter speed settings, etc, etc, all are key.
