Turn the knob to 11

buying photos

I see these guys at the races. They have big money cameras, hat on backwards, blinding flashes on sunny days while I'm trying not to target fixate away from the line. But then there's the Superfans with their iPhones or small pocket cameras taking as good or better shots. But they're yelling at you while ringing a bell or holding a beer at the same time. They post them up on The Facebook or in Flicker and they don't want a dime. I can understand a guy wanting to make a buck, but if that's the case, the shot should have more than just a racer in it. There should be pain, suffering, joy or at least grit in teeth and a drop of sweat visible.
