Thanks, Ramseus. Though, by my own admittance, I have a bit of an addiction to putting weird angles on things, which gets annoying after a little while.
How 'bout some moar spam?
A "straight" one for Paddy
Pardon that lack of sharpness in the car, I liked this photo too much to trash it:
This guy was such a character, it was embarrassingly easy to catch him in fantastic poses and expressions :lol:
I kind of... eh, forgot to get a whole bunch of launches (I got some, though). I was too busy trying to be more artsy. Unless I'm missing something, there aren't many angles at which you can capture launches in an interesting way, and even if you do manage to find that rarely-existing spot, it's extremely difficult to capture the movement without the boring "frozen motion" effect.
Nope, been around drag racing all my life. First as pit crew for my dad, handed out ET slips as a kid for extra money, then as photographer, then as a journalist/graphic artist for a drag racing newspaper, ran the timing system at a track in Rogersville, MO, then I worked as a tech for a timing system company (Accutime) and for the last 10 years I've been a track manager for a small dragstrip in SW Missouri. Also for the last few years I've also been an official/announcer for a traveling race series (CDRA). I've done every job at a dragstrip somewhere at sometime.
