I’m No Photographer…

IMG_4232 (Large)

…but I’m not displeased with this one. Danger Girl on a cloudy Mid-Ohio Saturday afternoon, heading towards the Honda bridge. And I took it in “M” mode on the Rebel, setting everything but the focus myself.

When I see the results of my own “work” behind the camera, however, it reminds me how lucky I am to work with people like Andrew Trahan, Jamey Price, Sean Klingelhoefer, Evan Klein, Peter Dawson, Ryan Doede, Matt Tierney, Puppyknuckles Dave, and several others. The challenge that I have is writing something that will make you forget all that visual bullshit.

Just kidding.

Kind of.

Enjoy (what’s left of) your weekend, everybody!

    Good to see that you put your driving “ban” too good use.

    That’s the best part about digital, instant feedback and a memory card(s) of space to get an in focus panning shot.

    Too lazy to use M, I use Tv for panning shots. Plus adjusting a Rebel in M mode was always a head scratcher for me. One of favorite things about my 7D is the Quick Control Dial.

    I wish I had *any* talent behind a camera .

    I have no idea what ” M or Rebel ” mean here but I thank you for sharing the pic .

      The “Rebel” is the cheap Canon digital camera.
      The 7D, 1D, 6D, and so on are the more expensive models.

      “M” means manual mode.

          There aren’t many options for the FiST brakes, unfortunately. The stock pads are almost always on backorder.

            Frankly I’m unimpressed with the stock pads. Too grabby on a light touch without the reserves to back it up, noisy in an odd, abrasive way, and prodigiously dusty. Though I’ve heard the compound might have changed for ’16, so YMMV.

            I had planned to just buy a new full set of Porterfield R4S and use them for all activities including occasional track work until they went away, because of received wisdom on pitfalls of swapping between track and street pads on the same set of rotors. If those have been overstated, I’d rather just have good race pads and good street pads.

            Unless DG is swapping rotors too…
