I took that image of that Formula 3 car locking up the front wheel at turn 5 of Circuit de Catalunya while testing at winter preparing the EuroFormula GT Open 2019 Championship, and I would like it to take part on the "Action" contest.

I have choosen that image because it shows me plenty of Action. You have the smoke of the tyre locked up, the driver's face expression thru the visor, and his hands.

Dear members,

I see that I haven't posted much after the Formula 1 images from the Winter Testing and two weeks ago I've been taking part in the Formula E races at Rome (Italy), so I wanted to share some of the best images I took with you hoping you also find them interesting.

It was my 2nd experience in a Formula E race and I have to say its a bis strange because those cars make no noise as they are electric vehicles, yet the racetrack had uphilling and downhilling and was quite good and an interesting race,

Hoping you like the images,

- During Qualyfing

--- Race Images

At the start of the race I decided to place myself at the jumping section after seing that this existed at the end of Qualyfing and found the place quite interesting,

Shooting thru fences is never nice,

_IMG1119 by Daniel Gonzalez Aguilera, en Flickr

The BMW Squad (here with Antonio Felix Da Costa driving) was on top on the first races but not this time

_IMG1128 by Daniel Gonzalez Aguilera, en Flickr

Nissan is the old Renault E-Dams Team re-branded, so their cars passed from being painted in blue to this dark grey colour

_IMG1150 by Daniel Gonzalez Aguilera, en Flickr

This is Championship Leader the belgian Jerome D'Ambrosio that ended up P6 but was enough to keep the championship leadership. I've been told in the spanish forum that this would look better if I cut more (the image was like that from the camera) but after trying it I quite don't like it, rather preffer this one

There was a big battle for the victory between André Lotterer (multiple times Le Mans winner) and Jaguar's driver Mitch Evans here placed after him. Evans will eventually overtake Lotterer and take victory home.

As you can see there was a lot of traffic (they say so about Rome xDDD)

_IMG1345 by Daniel Gonzalez Aguilera, en Flickr

Sam Bird (former champion) never found pace to be fighting with the leaders

While Stoffel Vandorne now driving for HWA after being in Formula 1 with McLaren, ended up 3rd

_IMG1403 by Daniel Gonzalez Aguilera, en Flickr

Here one of the NIO cars going flat out

_IMG1532 by Daniel Gonzalez Aguilera, en Flickr

And this is how the race ended up, Evans 1st and Poleman Lotterer 2nd

_IMG1490 by Daniel Gonzalez Aguilera, en Flickr

Equipment used:

- Pentax K3 Silver
- Pentax DA* 50-135mm f2.8
- Sigma 100-300mm f4 (Mainly and specially used during the race).

Different shutter speeds where used to capture different kind of images. What I found frustrating is that photographer spots usually are with cars approaching so you can't pan much and you need to use higher shutter speeds than in a normal race without walls in between. Yet is was quite fun, and a loooooot of walking. When I came to the media room I was very sweaty and I'm no particularly fat or overweight (maybe 5kgs).

Nevertheless Images are here and that is what matters,

Cheers!

Yes is a great experience but as you say I also miss the glorious sound of the V12,V10 and V8 engines.

I'd love to do WEC as I believe is a better competition to take images at as you have different conditions of light.

Indeed needs practice but to be honest i have been working at that racetrack a couple of times before so i knew some good spots to be at. And then you also just needed to follow the light. Let's say i was "playing at home".

Yet is true at first is not easy, takes practice.

Thank you lesmore49!
Indeed, that 200mm should have been in my backpack since day one. But to be honest I came on Monday from Oslo after Rally Sweden and sleeping a few and I just grabbed my backpack and runned to the track. So i totally forgot about the 200mm unfortunatelly.

Those Alfa Romeo guys are Giovanazzi with the helmet on and 2007 F1 Champ Kimi Raikkonen former Ferrari Driver and now in Alfa Romeo.
I do love also that image because it was very hard to be taken. It was getting dark and between us there was a lot of heads, but I've found a spot and the lights from a tv camera where giving me the chance to have him perfectly lighted :D

It take me a few tries but managed to create something nice :D



Thank you Malee Boy :D Glad you like them !

Dear members,

This year I have been able (finally!) to get a photographer media tabbard for the Formula 1 2019 Winter Tests this past week and so would love to share some of my images with all you,

I hope you like them :)

It is been lots of fun !!!! Yet 4 days working very hard and only being able to get to the pitlane for 1 hour a day unfortunatelly due to our type of photo-pass.
Yet also I have found very dissapointing is that Canon and Nikon bring lenses and a sensor cleaning service, but Pentax does not bring anything so you can't borrow any lenses and you have to use your own private gear.

The gear I have used here has been the following one:

Pentax K3 Silver
Pentax K5

Sigma 17-50mm f2.8
Pentax DA 50-135mm f2.8
Sigma 100-300mm F4

Pentax F 1.7x


Unfortunatelly i forgot my Pentax F* 200mm f2.8 at home every day.

I have found a big shame not being able to try and work with bigger lenses borrowed from the brand itself, but things go as they go I guess.

Hope you like them!

Hej Ole,

There is also one being sold close to my place but has some issues with the optics.
I have always wondered about those 400mm and this is more a question because of curiosity rather than about buying so feel free to DM instead or what ever.

I own a Fa* 200mm f2.8 and is a magnificent lens for portraits, but it suffers for motorsport for example. It doesn't like hard lights and uses to purple the images where the lights are, usually.
So my curiosity asks me to ask you if you ever tried the 400mm in racing and if so, how was it.

Thanks and excuse me if that botters you somehow.

Best wishes,

Hi members,

I'd like to share an image that you might already know to nominate it to participate in the Contest "Machines in Motion".

Montecarlo is a very special place for any motorsport fanatic and I am lucky enough to have been able to be there in the last 3 years. The past 2 I've been working as Media and as in every aspect in life, you learn from your mistakes so this past 2018 I think I learnt how to shoot better images in there.

This one I am uploading to take part in the contest is from the Porsche Supercup series, at the entry of the Pool section, where those cars literally fly over the kerbs, and I like it because it shows motion and how does the car flies to carry speed and keep its position in the race. You can also see that the front splitter has suffered some damage, I don't know if contacting a rival or maybe just jumping the kerbs on track.

I've taken it with my K3 + Sigma 100-300mm F4 at 1/125 of a second, and f13.

I hope you like it as much as I do,

Best regards,

Thanks but I do have a cleaning pack and I use to clean my sensors. When I say its humidity, sorry to say, I mean humidity mate.
No water, no dust, no nothing you can easily clean with a clean kit as the eyelead I have.

yeah, humidity will leave in like 5-6 months but then...... I wanna use my camera now xD

Anyways thanks for your help :)

Humidity in my Sensor

Hi folks,

Sorry if this post does not belong here,

Recently I bought a FF camera, but not a Pentax unlike my other ones. I decided myself to give a try to FF by buying cheap, and got a Canon 5D MK-I.
Where I live there's humidity but it never affected my K5 nor my K3, nor any lens and thought that the Canon will be as hard as my Pentax.

Oh boy if I was mistaken. I've used it once to photoshoot a friend of mine and when I came back home left the camera in a table. My big surprise came when I checked it because I've found some dust in some images randomly and it had two big dots of humidity in the sensor.

Since then (weeks or even months ago) I tried to attach a silica box in the camera closing it with the front cover but nothing happened. The seller told me that maybe I could scratch the sensor to take out one of the covers but I do not like the idea and anyways I do have no idea how to do that.

Did that ever happened to you? And if so, can you tell me how the h*ll did you solved the problem?

Thank you very much! Its very annoying having a new toy to play with and not being able to ever use it :S
