As an extreme sport photographer I usually shoot skateboarding, BMX, and car racing. I really wanted to make a series about the Red Bull Air Race too. I was therefore really glad that in 2015 the event was organized in Hungary. So I took my camera, and went to Budapest to take some photos.
I decided to shoot a sequence which could show the rapid change of direction of the airplanes. I was curious also to see how an image could demonstrate height and speed. I was also interested in how wind and smoke would behave in a sequence photo. The whole shoot was a great experience for me.
I took this photo with a Nikon D3 camera with a fixed 50 mm/ f.1.8 lens. I used f.11 F-stop to reach the right focal depth and a shutter speed of 1/1000 to freeze the motion.
