I’m going to let you in on a little secret: photographing sports, like most photography, isn’t really that hard. All it takes is the right equipment, the right settings, and the right eye for the action.
Finally, the settings. When taking sports photos, stopping the action is typically key. Depending upon the sport, this could mean shutter speeds anywhere from 1/500 for running sports like football and soccer to 1/4000 for Flo motorsports like Nascar racing. As a rule of thumb, shoot for the fastest possible shutter speed and set everything else to obtain that.

Gordon rolls in here 14th in standings with only one victory this year. He desperately needs to end up in victory lane Sunday night to have a chance to make the Chase this year. Given that the rescheduled event was in daylight last year, Gordon anticipates a different race Sunday.
Truex didn’t comment on possible suitors. He did say the improved performance at Earnhardt Ganassi will factor into his decision. But it won’t be the determining factor.
