Post a cool Pic of you in your Kart

The one I posted is not a usual haunt of mine but I wish it was. A local will get it immediately even though there’s no actual track shown.

Going old school here:) Me 97 racing 210 National British Long Circuit championships, Brands Hatch Kent leading at Druids hairpin. Probably 1983/4 season before I switched to 250’s.

Ooh that gives me an idea…pixels…

OKC? (20 char of guessing)

Maybe Atlanta if it’s not okc?

Negative on OKC and Atlanta…

Its not necessarily a track I have been to but maybe a rebel scum has?

So much leaning going on there. Horsepowers.

Rebooting this photo that was posted earlier…

Reason being you don’t see much use of lighting in kart photos generally. This reminds of my skate photo days.

Electronic flash is used for 2 reasons: freezing action and fill/directional lighting, particularly in backlit situations.

Imagine taking a picture of someone at the beach with sun setting behind them… the exposure will be confused by the strong lighting behind the subject… and the exposure will favor the setting sun, leaving the subject very underexposed.

With flash you can balance the lighting on the subject to the setting sun. This is what appears to be going on here. (Generically you could refer to this as fill-flash)

Looks to me like a Flash is off camera, either triggers by a slave or radio unit.

Intersting aside: we bought studio lights and the photo editor did a ramp shoot and his shots were blurry. The studio lights were very powerful but the length of their flash was therefore long and despite the flash, it was blurry.

I then went back and did it again since the editor was away and reshot it using 1/16 power and closer light sources and we got the freeze action (which was a Brazilian pro doing a huge switch frontside no-hand air, over head high on Jake’s widowmaker ramp. ( I got the cover! :sunglasses:)

Moral of story, powerful flash units produce an intense enough burst of light that it takes long enough to achieve peak intensity that it will not stop action.

Nude Bowl (I think)
