NASCAR Atlanta Motor Speedway Photos :: Throwback Thursday

Self Portrait of My First Nikon D100 DSLR Camera

I thought I would really mix it up for my Throwback Thursday post for today. I have had many aspirations as a photographer over the span of 20+ years worth of shooting, and since I pretty much loved all aspects of photography (see Flickr), I have pretty much shot everything. I have shot from stars and planets to flowers, aviation, sports (a ton of Auburn football), people, worship, and, yes, even NASCAR.

These shots below were taken on my very first Nikon DSLR I ever purchased. I was so excited about getting this digital camera, the first affordable DSLR of its kind. After years of shooting film, I was ready to dive into digital photography. This set of images was one of the first things I ever shot with my digital Nikon, and it was the Saturday qualifying for the NASCAR Winston Cup Series race at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. These shots below were taken almost exactly 9 years ago, back when I still actually did have some hair as you can see from my self-portrait shortly after I bought my Nikon D100. It’s amazing how long ago that feels, like a lifetime ago, yet I can remember every detail of every single image I took that day.

One thought

  1. Goggled Photo SpeedRace Nikon D100 and lo and behold your site appeared … just tickled me. (Did not think anyone would still have one of these). I went to my first speedrace this past Sunday in Rome, GA and took my Nikon D100. Had some fun in the pit and attempted to get cars in the shot!! To my surprise I succeeded. Onward and upward … Lord knows I need practice .
