Picture Perfect : Russian Grand Prix

The Sochi circuit winds its way around the iconic venues of the 2014 Winter Olympic venue. Nico is seen here flying past the ’Iceberg Sports Palace’ which was used for the figure skating events during the games. By zooming out and including the blue graphics of the buildings walls contrasted with the yellow of the R.S.17. this dynamic shot is created.

Composing the car in the bottom corner of the frame and using a very slow shutter speed, combined with a very smooth panning technique ensures the car stays pin-sharp.
