Photoghraphy & Photoshop

Here are some of the photography that I have done. Most of what I have done up to this point is drag racing. However I have started to do some of the local shows.

All of these photos have been worked in Photoshop and some are just playing around.

Some more

Here are a few more.

I would like to thank Kid Deuce @ Flickr for allowing me to use his photograph of the Shell station as a backdrop for the Ford.

Very nice work speedneeds! I'm sure you'll hear from Only Racing, who does professional drag race photography and has great tips and ideas. I started photographing the local drag races myself last year, but took a break while shopping for a new telephoto. If you don't mind my asking, what are you shooting with?

Keep 'em coming!

lt1silverhawk, I am shooting with my first DSLR a Sony a100. I bought it several years ago and still trying to figure it all out.
I don't get to do as much shooting as I did a couple of years ago, but still love it and hope to get back out and do more.

I've read the reviews on the Sony DSLRs and they clearly are pretty good. They just seem to lack the variety of lenses and other accessories that Canon and Nikon have.

If you're looking for some good pointers, Only Racing took the the time to post lots of good information in this thread for shooting at the track (from a dedicated professional's perspective): Drag Race Photography: Irwindale Speedway - July 2010

Have you considered taking photography classes? I personally have been teaching myself by researching online and then going out and practicing. There are tons of websites dedicated to teaching photography for free. I usually do a search on Google by typing something like "how to photograph drag races" or "car show photography tips".

Thanks for the info. I will check out Only Racing's thread. I have a complete DVD course on photography I just have a hard time finding the time to watch it. My wife and I run 2 small businesses (auto repair 8 am - 6 pm and a printing company from 6 pm - whenever). The printing company is actually the start of my photography, it started out as a photo gift business/hobby and turned into a job. However over the last couple of months I have been thinking of selling the printing company and getting back into the hobby.

Man, you're a busy guy! No wonder you don't get to photograph as much as you'd like to. I can completely relate to that. Which DVD are using?

The course I purchased was from creativeLIVE. I caught it on sale for like $49.00. They also have live courses that are free. It is just hard to find time for the free ones.
