An IndyCar in Motion Turns This Photo Into a Long Beach Watercolor Painting
Capturing some of the fastest formula cars in the world can be tricky if you don't have the best camera and lens.
Photographing racecars in action requires a very low ISO and shutter speed in bright light, but when the settings are right, the results can make for some unique captures.

Like this shot. It was tricky to do, but I think it turned out really fun. I dig that it looks more like a water painting than a photograph. It also reminds me that the 2022 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach is only 1.5 months away, and I am thoroughly stoked.
