I was shooting with 1D Mark IV and 70-200 f/2.8 most of the time to get some nice and close shots. Had some keepers, people loved those and everybody enjoyed challenge and shots from it (we were printing them out on location). After a while I wanted to get something different and put on 17-40 f/4.
This lens allowed me to get physically closer to the action and take some shots from almost bellow riders. I almost got hit by bikes 3 or 4 times but nothing happened so I’m cool. After few hundreds of shots I decided to do a slow shutter shoot and blend images together using #Photoshop . Here is the final result, hope you like it.
