    Hey Alls Soo I went too the ALMS/Indy weekend at MidOhio over this past weekend well only Sat I went :)
    Its Been since I think 05 since my last ALMS race, I've Seen that series race 7 times before I love it and missed it just a great atmosphere :)

    When I bought my Canon 40D this past feb I first thought well my concerts I attend alot and secondly I thought was motorsports specially ALMS This was my first time shooting Cars in motion with Dragging the Shutterspeed too stop them and blurr background at the same time :) I think I did ok pretty proud of some of these

    BUT Please I want some CC if any jump out and need it.

    I have a technical question for anyone that can answer it, When I got home I noticed I shot the whole day in Partial Metering mode doh that can't be good can it? should have had it in Evaulative mode right? Would partial metering mode do anything bad too these pictures? Thought I had control over the camera but overlooked Metering again DOH lol

    All these were shot at 100ISO and being this was my first time shooting Cars moving I was testing bigtime with various F stops and Shutterspeeds,, I found that between 1/125 and 1/160 SS and F8.0 does a good job at my favs here.

    All on track pics were taken with my canon 75-300 IS (IS was off) and hand held I do need too get a monopod though seems like everyone and there kid had one lol (I'll have one before the Detroit Grand prix in august ;))
    the in the pits were taken with a New Sigma 28-70 F2.8 lense I bought that 2 days before this event

    I'm gonna post my 10 favs then Don't panick or critique there's gonna be over 150 more in this stream of the show
    I don't like making people click thumnails plus I like too see them all in a scroll down stream its faster that way

    These are really nice pictures and amazing for your first outing with panning and handheld. I hope my first try at this type of photography goes half as well as yours did. Great Job.

    Basically all your pics of the DBR9 are really good. I've only been to one ALMS race, and that was my first time shooting 'fast' races lol. I learned a lot then. I was used to shooting autocross, and there's a big difference between cars going 60 mph and 130+ lol. I think you did really good for your first time.

    I watched this race on tv and it was excellent so I could only imagine beinging there but the pictures are outstanding. Cool thing with sending the mom the pictures. I have done that in the past at some motocross events and had a lady paypal $50 for the pictures..lol

    Good stuff but the pictures you posted most every one can get. You have to think outside of the box and getting some "Pretty Pictures" to set your self apart from all the other photographers in the world. Check out some of my photos from the Mid Ohio race
