Delaware Park Horse Racing and Action Photography

Hello Members,

Time to go back to Delaware Park to photograph the horse racing and fun. I have spoken to the director of public relation and he is getting us as close as possible to the track. (about 10 ft off the track) There is a fence around the track but we are going to be on a platform to get us above the fence. NICE.


I know this is going to be really fun and exciting.

We had a great time the last time we went!


Suggested equipment:

your standard camera bag

medium to longer lens (100mm to 300 mm)

extra batteries

extra memory cards

comfortable clothing and shoes

Camera rain cover, JUST IN CASE!

Money for food and drink.

If the weather is to bad for the horses to run I will reschedule! HOWEVER it will have to be a very heavy rain to cancel. Horses running in mud is great to photograph. I personally hope it rain some. The muddier the track the better!

Please note photography will only be allowed outdoors. NO PHOTOGRAPHY INDOORS!!

During this meet up I will be teaching how to use you ISO and shutter speed to get great motion and action images. Servo tracking, Single point and multi point focusing.

Hope to see many there!
