ALMS Northeast Grand Prix 2011

Just like last year, I went to the American Le Mans Series Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park, held on July 9, 2011 this year. I arrived early enough to walk around the open paddock to see all the teams’ set ups.  I also got to go out on the track for the open […]

PCA Club Racing Lime Rock Park 2011

This year I made it up to Lime Rock Park for the Porsche Club of America Club Racing event on April 30, 2011. It’s taken me a while to go through my shots, but I’ve finally posted the best of them in a new Trackside gallery. All of the posted shots are straight from the […]

My First Photography Award

This month, NNJR PCA held their “Slide Night” themed monthly meeting. Members were invited to submit photos and each contributor was given a chance to present their images. After everyone had shown their work, images were judged by Dom Miliano, a professional photographer and regular contributor to car magazines like Excellence. First, second, and third […]

ALMS Northeast Grand Prix Shots

I recently posted my best raw shots from the American Le Mans Series Northeast Grand Prix. The race was held on July 24, 2010 on a ridiculously hot day at Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, CT. Despite the weather, I really enjoyed the event because I was able to get really close to the track […]

Studio and Lighting Makeup Class

I recently went to a make-up class for the session I missed: using flash with ambient light.  For the rest of the course we had focused solely on shooting with strobes, but for this one session we learned how to capture part of the image with the strobes and the rest with ambient light. We […]

My First Studio Model Shoot

For the last Studio and Lighting class, a model was brought in and each student had the opportunity to shoot her however we liked. Only four (of the 8 in the class) students showed up, so we had plenty of time to get set up and take the shots we wanted. We were a little […]

Studio and Lighting: Second Half

My Studio and Lighting class is now over, although I did miss the fifth class and will be making that up in late September. I’ll cover classes 3, 4 and 6 in this post and then write another one about our model shoot in the last class. Class 3 covered the zone system, tone control […]

Laguna Seca from January 2010

I finally got around to picking out the best of a few shots I took of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca near Monterey while I was out in California last January.  I had gone to the front gate and said I was on vacation and had always watched the track on TV.  The guy there let […]

Trackside Pictures

While I’ve been away from photography classes over the last couple years, I certainly haven’t been away from photography. Over 2009, I took a bunch of pictures at Porsche Club of America track events. I’ve been lucky enough to borrow a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens from a friend to shoot all of these pictures.  […]
