About Group F/8
Our name f/8 is our way of paying omage to the great west coast photographers of the 1930's. Their group f/64 was created when photographer Willard Van Dyke and Ansel Adams decided to organize some of their fellow photographers for the purposes of promoting a common aesthetic principle. The term f/64 refers to the smallest aperture setting on a large format camera, which secures great depth of field, rendering a photograph evenly sharp from foreground to background.
Group f/8 has the same goals but is centered on motorsports. f/8 allows for the capture of motion. Our workshops are the first step in creating a community for motorsports photographers where ideas, trends, and techniques can be shared and explored.
