A Fine Day At The El Paso Speedway Park

Portrait of a beautiful young lady Grossinger Photography

Lila and I had a great time at the El Paso Speedway.

I met this gorgeous young lady at one of the cars being prepared for the race. Her eyes are so beautiful I just had to get this shot.

I took this picture with the Nikon D5000 and the Nikkor 18-200mm lens.

ISO 400 f/9  1/250  70mm Aperture Priority

It would have been a crime against humanity to pass up this gorgeous woman.

The Speedway is a photographer’s paradise!

When we arrived at the speedway about 2 hours early I checked into getting access to the pits. This is crucial at one of these events because some of the best photo ops take place before the race when you can talk to the drivers, mechanics and fans.

I used the same setup for all of these images. The D5000 with it’s swiveling LCD  makes composing a snap and the 18-200mm Nikkor is a super “walking around” lens.

This young lady was actually posed like this when I walked up and asked if I could take her picture. All I had to do is ask her to turn her head a bit for a better composition. I think the background helps this image a lot. Beautiful women and cars are a natural match.

This young man was taking off a lot of mud the car picked up from the last race. El Paso Speedway is a dirt track that gets watered down just before the race. Yeah, I came home with quite a bit of mud on me. The price you pay for getting close to the action.

I told you I would get to the actual race. I did get very close to the action. Close enough to get mud all over me.
