Hi guys,

Something a little bit different... I shot the Concours last Sunday. Flat light, full overcast, too many people, but great cars. I've put up a blind folder here:

http://www.digital-images.net/temp/Concours_dElegance/

A few examples of the shots in the folder:

Except for the hood ornaments (85/1.4D @ f/5.6-f/8), everything was shot with the 17-35 AFS at f/8 or f/11.

Hope you enjoy these...

Really neat - I liked the ones you put on DPR too. Seems the weather was very cooperative, or was it? Is sun better for cars - I'd guess the overcast would be better for keeping the shadows under control.

Eitherway - I like the Doozy ornament for sure! Now that was a time when they had a handle on what cars were for! And that square looking car - what is that???

Hi Gordon,

I've got a lot more... but of course there is a limit to what you can post on the 'net. I agree, though -- the subjects were certainly inspiring.

Chris, everything I posted on DPR is from that folder. You've got it all, in one place :^)

The squared-off car is probably the Ferrari (PininFarina design) (#4 in the samples, right?).

Mike... you only get one. I've definitely got dibs on the other one :^)

Excellent Ron. Its making me drool. You certainly did make wonderful use of an overcasted day. And that first shot of the hood ornament could be part of a product campaign. So wonderful!

Hi, Ron

I'm not particularly a car fan, but these photos are just exquisite. I know a lot of others in the Cafe are really going to drool over them. This event must have been fun to shoot. Did you get any people shots too?

Hi Christian,

I really did enjoy shooting some of the neat hood ornaments. There are a few others in that folder (top link). The entire day was quite fun and interesting... quite different from the normal shoot I'm involved in :^)

Virginia, I pretty much concentrated on shooting the cars. There is one 'people shot' in the folder -- I asked a lady to model beside a Pope Toledo, as she seemed to fit so nicely with the clothes she was wearing.

Exquisite Cars, Exquisite Photos

Loved looking at all of them in the folder. You did a great job with these Ron. Isolation is key to getting an interesting shot, isn't it?
