WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! A stunner of a shot! Great work!
See all

Behind The Lens

Location
Greece, NY auto show, summer of 2015
Time
Judging by the shadows, it was about noon. I had driven from Buffalo, NY, my hometown to Greece, about an hour and half away on a Saturday morning for the show.
Lighting
The stark sky was an advantage but I didn't use any fill light from my speedlight, though I have at other car shows to fill in the dark shadows if the sun is too harsh.
Equipment
I shoot RAW files with an older Canon 7D, which has a crop sensor and my favorite lens - the Canon 24-105mm zoom. The crop makes the actual range more like 36-150 which handles just about everything I need while walking around at these types of shows.
Inspiration
I'm a big fan of older cars and especially convertibles!
Editing
I process all my files in Lightroom, though I am now branching out into Photoshop.
In my camera bag
That depends on what I'm shooting (subject matter). If I'm shooting cars, I might bring a flash to fill in harsh shadows and even a remote trigger for it to add different lighting that no one else would see, if they were standing next to me. I might bring my 10-20mm wide angle and place it on my full sensor Canon 5D MkIII which I bought used to really stretch out and magnify a car's lines. And, of course, my workhorse 24-105mm Canon zoom!
Feedback
The best advice I ever received was to shoot from an angle other than standing straight up with the camera at eye level! Everyone shoots from there - so go up, or go down. Tip the photo for some drama - drag the shutter on a stationary car to give the effect of motion - anything but eye level!
