NE-SVT hosted an autocross at Devens today. I have come to realize I am taking far too many pictures, and can’t edit them all to be presented in a way I am pleased with. This gallery has a lot of pictures in less than perfect focus and sharpness, however I have posted them all for the drivers who like to analyse camber and other aspects of how his or her car is handling. In the future my aim is now to take far fewer pictures and focus more on technique and creative/interesting shots than sheer numbers. Feel free to discuss this here as comments can be left.
I shot my first autocross of the season today at Devens in Ayer, MA hosted by TCUSA. It was windy and cold with over 40 drivers participating. I had to leave early for work therefore each car has between 20 and 40 pictures. (I got all of the first run group, but only half of the second.) In all there are nearly 1500 pictures. I know a lot of the drivers like to analyze how his or her vehicle is reacting, so I have posted all the shots (even the less sharp ones).
Thanks to the generous donations I received from the autocross events last year I was able to open this site and replace my malfunctioning 55-200mm lens with a wonderful 70-300mm VR lens which I used to shoot this event. I plan on working towards more creative photos, so please consider donating if you like what I am doing. Don’t forget to check out and like my facebook page as well if you enjoyed these photos.
NE-SVT hosted their last official autocross of the season today at Devens in Ayer, MA. The early morning fog created some fantastic imagery with the course disappearing into the void, and the roar of unseen V8’s echoing off invisible walls. After discovering my lens was malfunctioning at the NHIS event I tried using a couple different lenses for this event. After unsatisfying results, I went back to the broken lens and used it with the VR feature disabled. I also began experimenting with some other settings, which now gives most shots a better sense of speed. I really enjoyed shooting this event, and I look forward to attending more events next year, with a better lens!
Today I attended another autocross at Devens in Ayer, MA hosted by NE-SVT. I took over 2500 pictures today, and for the first time I am not limiting the gallery to 10 shots per car. I was hoping to see more colors in the trees, but it seems that Ayer trees are stubborn!
I attended another autocross event at Devens in Ayer, MA hosted by NE-SVT today. I was excited by the interest in my photos from the last event, so I made it a point to get a lot of shots of each car. After over ten hours of renaming, sorting, post-processing, and hosting over 1000 photos, I settled on 10 pictures of each car to post in a gallery.
NE-SVT hosted an autocross event today at Devens in Ayer, MA which I attended to photograph my brother’s supercharged Cadillac CTSV and my step father’s supercharged Pontiac Fiero. I took some pictures of all the cars that were there to gain some experience in freezing motion with my camera.
