Outrageous composition! Love that it's B/W!

Behind The Lens

The photo was taken in Waterloo, NY during a town wide classic car show. I love getting out and shooting these cars at every angle I can think of.
This particular photo was taken about 2 in the afternoon.
When I'm shooting car shows I just work with the natural light. It can be very exciting to go through the shots and see what has happened as the result of the conditions of the day, was it sunny, overcast, etc. It was very sunny on this
I shot this with my Nikon D40, no tripod or flash.
Typically I'm looking for something of interest, it can be the chrome or finish or angle or uniqueness of the car or subject. In this case I was drawn to the reflection of the other car on both the hubcap and side of the car.
Mainly just converting the image to black and white, and sharpening the image.
In my camera bag
I travel light! Just the Nikon D40 and two lens, 18-55 and 55-200.
Look for items of interest when shooting classic cars. They tend to have a ton of chrome and reflective paint jobs, and shooting from all angles can give you rewarding results.
