So, I didn't do much shooting last year, and I want to change that for this year, and have so far gotten off to a decent start. Therefore, I'm making a thread where I can dump the highlights from meets and whatnot.

A few local enthusiast groups share a weekly Wednesday meet that I drag my camera to as well. I shot at last week's and this week's meets:

Thank you!

And the setup is the best part. All of these shots were taken using a 4-year-old Canon Rebel XS with the kit lens. My next upgrade is going to be a faster lens, anything with an f-number below 2 will be ideal to help contrast the background from the subject.

They're called blowers, if I've got my vocab right. What you're seeing is basically where the engine get its oxygen from. A nose of sorts. When it revs, those two covers flip, allowing oxygen into the engine.

That Leggy belongs to that chick who used to have the Bugeye wagon. The car with the GrimmSpeed vinyl isn't a shop car, the dude's just got a ton of their parts on it and figured "why not?" It's a WRX with an STi motor, all sorts of loud and fun.

As for the Vette, that's an enormous carb with forward facing intake/throttle plates (I'm not sure what they're called exactly, I only know EFI). It's only called a blower when there's actually a blower (supercharger) there. From what I hear, it's an old funny car motor, a 623, detuned for pump gas and street use, capable of 1800hp.

Is it bad that I'm looking forward to more pictures from you when you get your next camera upgrade? Did you take photography classes or something back in the day?

I've taken a single photography class, and I learned very little in it. As with cars and computers, I'm mostly self-taught.

And thanks for the votes of confidence, guys. I really appreciate it. In return, I give you MORE PICS!

If you saw the shots disappear a bit this morning, and noticed the ones that came back were a bit different... I made the mistake of processing these on my laptop last night, where the screen is far too bright, so I lost a stop of exposure on every shot. Current ones are fixed.

Also, figured I'd post a pic for Tessou:

Do it!

Also, my buddy's FB is awesome. S4 13B, twin side-draft carb (don't remember the brand, but it's Italian) into a Racing Beat intake, Racing Beat cat-delete downpipe, stock catback, S4 trans, 4.78 LSD rear end, ridiculous sway bars, and Koni yellows. Stupid cheap build, and I'm damn certain it would pull ever so slowly on a stock Evo, as I need 15psi just to keep up.

I'm still surprised he managed to get his hands on that spoiler though, $60 for a rare factory option that usually goes for multiple hundreds. He's also got the removable roof panel, which was rare on the GS models.

In short, that car is my motivation to pay off the Evo and pick up an FB project.

Really greats shots Spaz and great thread to start.

I don't know why but I really like the 03-05 STi in black. Always thought it looked best in that color.
