Learn how to capture fast paced action with Rally Cars at the London Rally School, Friday 1st March 2019

This promises to be an excellent day of photography learning amongst this exciting and fast paced sport! Capturing moving subjects can be tricky, especially if they are moving fast and you don't have much time to get the shot. On this course we aim to get you confident with shooting moving subjects on location by exploring the settings and techniques that will give you sharp and creative images in any situation where there is movement. With access around the track you will be able to photograph from a variety of different positions to capture the cars racing during the days practicals and put into practise everything you have learned. Your tutor will be on hand throughout the course to assist you and he will be delivering in depth classroom training before you head out to test your knowledge out! This course is for anyone wanting to improve their photography or try something new!
