SPORTS: Photogs at NASCAR event

  1. Over this past 4 day Samsung/Radio Shack 500 weekend I took some shots of the Pros at work. Thought you might like that more than car shots (although I have some of those as well)

    I see 5 photogs in this shot (inside the garage area were us mere mortals were not allowed):

    Pretty high up:

    Taking a break during a caution:

    I can't imagine the wind force these guys must have to hold steady through:

    A foot farther and he would have missed it...

    Not sure what he's shooting but the other guy looks ticked that he didn't think of it first...

  2. Good shots Joe. I noticed some of the pros have 2 or 3 cameras with different lenses over their shoulder. :eek: :eek: :eek:
     
  3. Hey Dawg,

    Yeah, they were all like that. Some of the guys had big glass sitting on the ground with no body attached but most had 2 bodies.

    The one picture I wish I'd gotten was of a guy walking around with no less than 6 bodies slung on his shoulders. He looked a little like Darth Vader with all that black on.

  5. Wow Joe, thats a lot of glass around that racetrack. Good shots all.
     
  6. Nice shots! Picture # 3 makes me shiver - having high $$$ cameras just sitting on that narrow ledge!
