I used to not take my camera when I go to events with my children.  Now I do but I get so tied up in what is going on, that I don’t take too many photos.  My daughter went to a birthday party where they have a year round downhill tubing slope.  I am glad that I decided to break out the camera for this.  I got some great smiles and joy captured.  This was one of many.

One of my favorite genres of photography is Street Photography.  To me, there is nothing better than catching a candid shot of person engaged in whatever it is that they are doing.  For me, it is also one of the most challenging.  I am not a “people” person and prefer to spend time alone and away from crowds.  I do try to push the edge of uncomfortable for me and sometimes I walk away with something that I am proud of.

I took this shot at Dixie Speedway last summer.  I spent an evening in the pits with my brother and two nephews, one happens to race.  I was walking around getting some shots of the cars and made it back by just in time to see my nephew getting ready to race…

I was shooting in the pits at Dixie Speedway when I noticed several people take a minute to watch as the sun was setting.  There was an electric feel to the air as everyone was getting ready for some racing under the lights.  The grandstands were filling and fine tuning was happening to some engines.  Nothing like the smell of gas, loud engines and Georgia red clay to make for the start of a good Saturday night.

Shooting at a dirt race track was tons of fun and challenging.  The lighting is terrible, it is horribly loud and there is the ever present dirt.  Fortunately, I got a pit pass, but it was only for me and not the rest of the family or my van.  Nothing leaves a dirt track clean and that included my camera gear.  Most of the time, I stood on the back of a four wheeler in turn two and got some good action shots.  That was until one car hit the inside wall just beside me.  I missed most of the mud, but not the camera.

My nephew raced this past weekend at both Dixie Speedway and Rome Speedway.  He placed tenth and eighth.  I was not able to go, but I got this the last time I went to Dixie.  I had tons of fun trying to capture the car …Continue Reading Here…

My soon to be nephew races at a local dirt track called Dixie Speedway.  He invited me a couple of months ago to take photos of him racing.  Well, I was finally able to go this past weekend.  I have been to several Nascar races, including Daytona …Continue Reading Here…
