Racing in from the Show-Me State

Greetings!
Recently found this board after doing research on a new lens for my camera. The thread about shooting basketball games caught my eye and has been a big help.

I have had a Pentax K1000 since the early 80s and last August I bought a brand new K100D, which I love. Mostly I shoot my son playing baseball or basketball, or my daughter making faces at me for taking her picture. Along with that, I am learning how to shoot motorsports.

A good friend of mine is a professional studio photographer who enjoys motorsports. I am a race fan who likes to play around with photography. Last year we teamed up and started our own website and blog, Girls Gone Racin' and we've had a great time hitting the road, watching racing and taking lots of fun photos.

I am strictly an amateur, so much so that I feel a bit intimadated by all of the lingo and numbers here, but I hope to eventually learn the meaning of terms like ISO and aperature. Between my photographer friend and these boards, that shouldn't be too tough.

Welcome and looked at your gallery. You have some nice shots of those cart races. I think you have nothing to worry about fitting in here.

Thank you, but the Kart pics are not mine! My photographer friend took those. She does do nice work though, doesn't she? Any photos you see that are credited to Spring, are my friend. The ones that were taken by Val are mine.

Welcome Val, I like racing too, but in stuff that floats and has rags and a couple of big sitcks on it. Have fun and the lingo will eventually come.
