#iamthespeedhunter: You Are The Creators

I think it’s only now that I’ve had the stark realisation that 2012 has been committed to the past. Although it’s gone forever, there’s nothing stopping us looking back with a certain amount of fondness at the year that should have been the last. However, I’ve just had another realisation. This time last year #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER didn’t even exist. In fact, this whole program didn’t really kick off until September of last year which means that it missed most of the motorsport season. So most of the images that make their way onto these pages were only considered for #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER after they had been taken. It makes me wonder then, just what will you come up with now that you know you have a place to proudly display your work?  2013 is looking a lot more exciting all of a sudden…

(Above) Shots like this don’t happen by accident. An acute awareness of your surroundings, an understanding of light and a little bit of planning go a long way to creating an image as powerful as this. Magnifique.

Of course, learning to use artificial light can pay dividends too.

A lot of photography newcomers often get hung up on the techniques and settings for panning. The trick is actually think less and shoot more.

Selective colouring is something that can be a little bit hit and miss. When executed right however, it does add to an image. Bonus points for colour matching the ‘N’ in your watermark Sebastian!

This high contrast black and white landscape of the Nordschleife as the track winds its way towards Adenau village would look great on anyone’s wall.

I’m a sucker for a low point of view.

Clean execution and great lighting. Kudos Nate!

If you’re going to represent your country, I can’t think of any better ways.

Looks like Larry wasn’t the only one to basque in the glorious light at Thunderhill.

I’m quite liking this gritty capture by Ben Johnstone.

“Just popping to the shop, anyone need milk?”

Great perspective on this one, I think it’s a shot a lot of us might have never seen. Keen eye.

Hanging around after an event can provide plenty of opportunities that you may otherwise miss.

Sometimes however, all you have to do is be in the right place at the right time.

Cool selection as always. But if there are so many good photos rolling in, why not share a few more? I was actually surprised at the brevity of this post.
