Classic and Modified Car Show Images

Discussion in 'Street, Documentary, and Portrait' started by Luckypenguin, Sep 13, 2011.

  1. I attended a local street festival on the weekend which included a display of classic and modified American cars and hotrods. The setting wasn't the most photogenic for getting broader shots of the cars so I mostly concentrated on details. I haven't really shot cars before so I was making it up as I went. Sorry but I wasn't really keeping track of the makes and models of the cars. Camera and lenses as noted, processed in Color Efex and Silver Efex (GH1 in RAW and E-PL1 in JPEG).

    Cool shots. My favorite is #5. I like the "vintage" coloring done to some of those - well done!

    Thanks for the images, you've given me some great ideas for shooting my father-in-law's GTX.

    Very nice. Thanks for sharing.

    #4 = one of the all time great designs... the 70 1/2 Camaro with split bumpers.

    Got any shots of entire cars? :)

    Nice variety Nic. I like the self portrait and also the colour of the images in the middle section.

  7. Thanks for all your feedback :)

    Not too many I'm afraid. There was always too much stuff in the background to get a decent shot, but I did take the ones below which give a broader view of some of the cars. There were only about a dozen cars in total. These are all SOOC.
