Chasing the Championship
Covering the same sporting events each year, you're always looking for a fresh way to document the day. But sometimes you want to revisit the same picture you made the year prior hoping to top it.
Last year, I setup a very similar remote in victory lane at Richmond International Raceway. While the year prior yielded an interesting frame, I knew there was a better frame there with a slower shutter speed.
With a Nationwide race the night before, it gave me a chance to really fine tune the remote. When Carl Edwards won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series 56th Annual Federated Auto Parts 400, things were all set - all left was to hope it fired.
Splashing Gatorade and multiple flash bulbs, I ended up liking this frame much more than last years frame, but still didn't get any confetti. Maybe next year I'll attempt to improve on this even more when the colored paper streaks across the frame.
