#iamthespeedhunter: Back On Track

Another month, another week and another round-up of some of the best images sent into us over the last couple of weeks. In case you missed yesterday’s post, we launched another theme which we will reveal on the last Tuesday of this month. However, we’re going to keep our weekly posts going so keep sending your shots in. For further information on how to contribute, check out the bottom of this post for all the details along with some tips to help you get featured.

(Above) Tracking the unmistakeable profile of a Viper in the low sun is a golden opportunity well taken, whilst the processing just adds to that summer road trip vibe. Let the V10 loose…

It’s not just the panning technique that caught my eye on this one, but the clean background and lack of distractions. Details considered ahead of time.

From the recent F1 test at Catalunya comes this super slow shutter shot by Rob Blank. Rob, print this and frame it on your wall. It’s immense.

Another slow shutter shot and another single-seater but with a completely different approach. I can imagine it took a couple of attempts to catch the car in the sunlight but boy, was it worth the effort.

Some nice soft off-camera lighting from Melvin in this detail shot of a familiar face.

Our own Mad Mike Whiddett captured by Masha Panova. Masha can correct me if I’m wrong on this, but here he’s shooting against strong sunlight during the middle of the day. With the sun overhead, Masha has exposed for the highlights which in turn darkens the rest of the image, leading to this great outline and silhouette.

This one comes from Flickr user Le Baron Noir (real name not given). The lone orange car against the bleak banking creates an interesting images.

Another from our Flickr Group but this time by Jon Tran with an amazing image of this ZN6. The dark tones along with the blue / orange background play a big part in being visually pleasing.

Jason Patel brings us a slightly unorthodox method of off-camera lighting. Don’t try this at home.

This may have been taken a couple of years back but I love how James has filled the frame here to best show the mayhem on display.

Lots of panning shots coming in after our slow shutter theme last month.

It’s an effective tool to have in your arsenal of tricks, so be sure to keep practicing to stay sharp. Nice work Danny Sullivan!

The rule of thirds is an essential part of creating visually pleasing photography. Sometimes, it’s nice not to fill the frame, and instead to give the viewer a better look at the surroundings.

See what I mean? I always make a point to take my expected shot followed by a super wide one. Variety is the name of the game and it’s only by experimenting that you’ll create something exciting.

That’s it for another week, I’ll be back next week with more of your awesome submissions. Keep ‘em coming!

That shot of Christopher Lim is absolute gorgeous!

Many thanks for including my shot of the Fiesta 4x4 T16, chuffed one of my photos made the cut!


Cheers for posting the shot of the Lambo.. Second time i have been featured such an amazing feeling. Thanks Paddy


That ZN6...O_O <3 <3 <3 The combination of the great photography and the rim and body fitment makes this car look like an M3 in price and performance


hot daymn that picture of the lambo is soo good that orange colour makes it pop out of the screen!

love it!


any details on that Integra? it looks so damn good i'd love to know more about it


Im in love with the shot of the Viper


Any chance of these getting blown up for desktops?


Loving all of these shots. Great stuff!


That Ferrari F1 pic is great, well done that man.


 @DavidClarke Ha, glad I'm not the only one who gets a kick out of being featured!



 @Nikhil_P ok. so. I don't mean to sound like an asshole but that picture makes the lambo look so.... special education. I think 90% of the problem is that the rims look too small for the body. Please don't get me wrong. I would love to own this car AND in some angles this car is as beautiful of the rest of them; However this is probably an example of good technical photography with bad composition.
