Dan Austins Photography & Personal Blogs Daphot10

Hello one and all.
As some of you may know, I have recently decided to switch from a compact camera to a DSLR system in order to further increase my experience in photography. I will admit at this present time to being an amateur but I hope one day to be a pro.
The experience of attending the FIA WEC at Silverstone has certainly been life changing. During my time at the track, I couldn't get any decent shots because a compact camera really struggles to focus on fast moving objects. So during last month, I decided to take the plunge and order a Canon EOS 1100D (Rebel T3). Having acquired the Canon recently, I very much decided that I wanted to do photography as a profession. Even though it's an extremely tough environment to do well in, I've decided the field of photography I wanted to specialise in. It seems quite obvious as it's my biggest passion in life... Motorsport! Now whether I'll earn a living working as a photographer for a team or as a business selling prints, posters etc etc, I haven't fully decided yet. But I'm quite open to both ideas. If they wanted as well, I could also do photography for TORA free of charge of course!  Wink

But as I've described earlier, I'm very much a beginner at DSLR photography and really only started as early as last month. However, I'm hoping to attend college later this year at a beginners course and advance from that. At this present time, I don't have a vast variety of camera lenses. I've only got the standard 18-55mm lens provided by Canon with the camera. But I'm hoping to purchase a 75-300mm USM lens next week. So the landscape images you'll see are the ones I've taken with the 18-55mm lens. Please feel free to take a look at my pictures and all kinds of feedback, advice and tips are welcome. Here are some examples of images I've taken so far as well as a link to Flickr so you can see the rest.

Enjoy folks! And feel free to download any that you like as well.  Smile  Smile

Thanks very much folks for the kind comments so far.
I didn't expect this much positivity straight away but it's great to know that you really like my work so far. I know now that this decision to take up photography was the right one. Very Happy Very Happy

Taken from my rubbish day out at Barmouth last Saturday. I would definitely advice people not to go there. Razz 
These shots were taken using the standard 18-55mm lens. The only editing I've done is to the final picture to convert it to Mono (Black & White).

CQR Aero was the first to flip, whilst BAR Smurfy was caught out and slid into the barrier. Which in turn collects me and sbiggs later on & Chucky was also defeated by the curbs as seen in the background!
