Welcome to the sixth appointment with the column ‘Mirco Lazzari portrays MotoGP’. For all 19 races of 2014 season, we will follow the MotoGP championship through the lens of Mirco Lazzari, master of sports photography and MotoGP official photographer.
Along with him and his tutorials, we will discover the secrets of the sports image and the ‘behind the scenes’ of the most exciting two wheels Championship of the world.
Mugello is universally recognized under the slogan “No sleep in Mugello!” and I liked the idea of expressing this feature through an emblematic photo. The stands crowded with people are a prerogative of this circuit, but the public with the campers on the track is definitely a more unusual image. I could take this picture helped by the sun and the high temperature: the heat effect makes a not perfectly defined background, leaving the bike engraved.
