Shooting the car show

Vintage car owners around North America are a fun group of people. Held together by the common bond of their vintage cars. Most belong to clubs large and small. The Spokane Washington area with a radius of about 250 kilometers seams to have more than average. I suspect that Southern California would be the vintage car capital but up here you don’t have to look far, the cars are everywhere. Every sunny summer day you can find groups of vintage car lovers gathered in some parking lot or another.

When the car clubs organize an outing it can be a rolling museum with dozens of jaw dropping vintage cars reflecting the sun shine and inviting anyone to stop by and gaze at each amazing model. The clubs and individual owners welcome photographers to prowl around take all the photos they want. It can be a great opportunity for photographers new and old to get some fun photos. The trouble can be getting something a little different than the rest of the photographers. Not as easy as you may think.

Winter HDR

Perfecting HDR photography is still perfecting photography in that I think you never really get it right, you just get better at it . Oh yes you can get better at it but if you are your own harsh critic you will always find ways to make improvements. Ways to tweak things so you can see progress from the early beginnings. It’s a fun journey but some times a long and slow one. When it works it can really work. That’s the reward I suppose.
