    I had an assignment for my photojournalism class to document a local event put on by a local organization. I chose the Autocross event at University of North Carolina of Greensboro's Park N Ride Lot Sept 20th by Triad Sports Car Club (TSCC).

    This was my first time trying to capture moving cars with a new digital camera. My camera would only focus with the lens it came with and I had to manually focus with my other lens, which I found difficult to do while panning, focusing, checking the shutter speed and light meter all at once before the car moves out of the frame.

    I also had to show before, during, after, and behind-the-scenes. I shot over 100 pictures, but I chose the ones I think that are the best...

    thats WAY to many to try and help with c&c. Try picking 4 or 5 of your absolute favorite photos and start there. That GTR is a friend of mine, Matt. Good guy to know if you are getting into photography. He has a lot of hook ups with car clubs/events etc etc.

    Nice to see some local stuff on here, however. I live just outside Greensboro on the Burlington side.

    Wasn't really feeling the shots with the cheap wideangle lens.
    I don't mean to be a dbag, but none of these images looked anything more then someone with a point&shoot.
