On the advise of a friend we headed to Kings Cross and onto the Embankment, and secured a space on the sweet spot barrier. This location proved to be quite good so we stayed here for the first 6 laps. Then keen to get some different shots headed across the road and towards Whitehall and the stage start/finish.
I managed to squeeze behind some people near the finish and held out my camera high above my head hoping for a decent shot, and was very happy with the result.
I used the following settings:
AF-C continuous focus
Shutter between 1/10s – 1/60s
Large an aperture as possible to isolate rider and blur background.
High shutter speeds 1/1000s
High ISO 800
And tried to shoot with both eyes open (harder than I thought it would be)
