It’s Car Show Time Again

Originally posted on

Automobiles come in many different sizes, colors, and shapes making them ideal photographic subjects and on almost any Summer weekend day—weather permitting—you’ll find a car show in your area. Then there’s impromptu shows not associated with any organization and are staged on a regular basis at a local donut shop or burger joint. Look for flyers about these kinds of show wherever you see cool cars parked. In addition to having  posts about car museums that you can visit on my car blog, my goal for the 2013 car season is to visit local car shows and write about them, including some photographs and tips on how I made the images. I also plan to post what car shows that I will be attending—below—in the hope that you can join me in an informal photo walk through the show as we make some fun photographs together.

2013 Show Schedule

June 15, 2013: Classic Rock Cruise, Castle Rock, Colorado

Castle Rock Car Show

Regular Shutterbug readers know that I often use car shows to test new cameras and lenses. If that’s the case, you can get a sneak peek of what I’m working on and I’ll be glad to show you the gear, let you handle it, and answer any questions that you might have. The above image was shot while testing the Canon EOS Rebel T3i with Tamron 11-18mm lens and an exposure of 1/200 sec at f/8 and ISO 2oo. It was made at the annual Classic Car Show in Castle Rock, Colorado. I hope to attend this year’s show; Once I know for sure I will post details above.

Looking forward to meeting some of you at a car show this summer.
