N00b armed with a K-r :)

Greetings from Omaha Nebraska! The name is Chris and I am the proud owner of a Pentax K-r with the 18-55mm and 50-200mm kit lenses and I am an avid autosports enthusiast. Both driving and photography wise!

Of course the Pentax K-r takes care of the photography portion but this takes care of the driving portion:

It's a 2009 Mustang GT with a proper manual gearbox and a load of suspension modifications to make it turn willingly (really it's not that much more than springs, dampers, swaybars, some proper axle lateral location and some good tires)

(Photo taken by David at

Of course, she's not my only subject for photography! I do photograph other cars while racing: (Sorry for using photobucket for these, intended to show lots of pictures from a large event in the quickest format possible)

and it's not always cars!

Anyway, now I've gone and picture whored my own thread up!

Thanks! I hope to hang around a bit and learn some better photography skills as I would like to get into the crowded world of motorsport photography as a side job I already made quite a few mistakes when taking pictures of other cars, most aggravating of all was leaving the 50-200mm at home and having to take photos with the 18-55mm! Issue has been solved by leaving the 50-200mm on the K-r all the time! You have to make mistakes to learn right?
