In this second installment of the B&A my Dad requested I do a few images from my R/C Fun Time post, so here you go Dad. 1.  For this photo I didn’t push it to make drastic changes except for going to B/W.  The reason I did go to B/W was because I thought that… Read more »

SVRA

The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association held their second event at the Brickyard last year and it was my first time attending a vintage race.  Thinking I knew what to expect for the one day I was able to shoot I wasn’t all that excited for the event.  Don’t get me wrong I love the classic… Read more »

Mid-Ohio 2015

For my second trip to Mid-Ohio I was even more excited but not nearly as nervous as my first trip.  Knowing the track layout and visual lines of most of the track helped prepare me for a much higher success rate of capturing images.
