I don't recall if I detailed my kit myself.

I'm a Canon guy.

1DX
7D
24-105 f4
70-200 f2.8
2X Extender
600ET-RX flash

Much like Mike, I'm a sports guy but I do events and still work as I can as that pays better right now. Turns out, everyone needs a sports guy, but they don't seem to be able to justify paying. Here's a GIF I made from a shot at a local basketball tournament.

"but they don't seem to be able to justify paying."

No doubt on this one. They want everything, extra coverage, extra shots, blah, blah, blah..."I'll pay..." I'd be retired if that were true.

A lot of people don't realize the cost of the equipment has to be figured into the cost of the pix.

I think they realize it, I don't think they care.

I'm about to have a come to Jesus meeting with the paper I work with. They're dragging their feet about my NASCAR credentials (Atlanta starts in just over a week. Time's a runnin out.) and since that's how they pay me, it seems they need to step it up.

Sooooo, anyone have an extra set of media creds for Atlanta they don't need?

I am new to photography. I would like to thank all of you for sharing your pictures, thoughts, and experience. I decided I wanted something better than an iPhone camera to capture the places we were going with the RV. (Although, I do have some pretty good iPhone pics). So in November I picked up the following:
Camera:
Nikon D5300
Lenses:
Nikkor 55-200 f4
Nikkor 18-55 f3.5 (Kit Lens)
Medium duty tripod
I am spending my winter learning the basics / practicing and yearning for camping season. I did opt for the Lightroom / Photoshop $9.95 monthly deal. I shoot in RAW and I am amazed at the options it gives me in processing photos (I said I was new). I love Lightroom and am baffled by the complexity of Photoshop. I look forward to more posts and thought I would share some of my practice shots.

Go to KelbyOne - A better way to learning Photoshop, Lightroom and Photography and look into the training there, it's excellent. I went to Scott's Shoot Like A Pro tour last year and it raised my game beyond belief in just one day. Joel Grimes is next week, I'm deciding about going to that if I can.

Photoshop is amazing, just using content aware on removing problems is more than worth it.

Excellent shots, can't wait to see more!

Looks like sharp lens. Is is fast focusing?

It is fair. Not sure how much of that is me or the lens. It seems to keep up on continuous focus.
