Canon 1Dx, 16-35mm, 6400iso, f11, 1/30th, ManualThis was a fun shot as I would hold the camera out of the car aimed over at fellow photographer Ron Lewis in the fueler next to me. If you look closely you can see Ron holding his camera out shooting pics too!

Day three of the Winternationals would be a long day that was highlighted by me getting the opportunity to sit being the engine of a nostalgia top fueler spitting out header flames at night. Lets take a look at Saturdays action.

For week two of NHRA in Indy I would continue my yearly tradition of doing candid driver portraits in the staging lanes during qualifying. Its always an adventure doing these type shots with an assistant running around with me carrying a softbox. But when the photos come out good it makes all the additional effort worthwhile!
