Car Show

with 2 comments

If you haven’t noticed, it’s been a while since I’ve posted any pictures. That’s simple because I haven’t been taking any. I’m not a fan of cold weather and the rough winter we had kept me from going outside to explore and shoot photos. Thankfully spring is here and I’m feeling more motivated to pick up the camera again.

Last weekend I went to a local car show and took a number of photos. It was an overcast day and in order to capture the cars correctly I had to crank the exposure compensation up quite a bit. This unfortunately resulted in washing out lighter areas of the sky and background, so the picture quality is so-so. Still, the cars turned out okay enough, so I don’t mind showing these. All were taken with the Pentax K-r using the kit 18-55 lens. Having grown up going to car shows with my dad, I find that I’m sort of burnt out on muscle cars and am attracted more to the rarer and unique cars at shows, which is somewhat reflected in the pictures I took…
