Yesterday I went to the Oak Bay car show (after a friend reminded me it was on…). Photographing cars is fun, lots of interesting shapes and lines, but it is hard to control reflections.
The subject of this image is the reflections though…
or again, emphasizing the brightness of the reflections….
Much of my photography is about details. Old cars are an almost overwhelming treasure trove of details, especially hood ornaments…
and other styling details….
Personally, I like the look of cars before the late 1950’s – early 1960’s. The 1970’s were pretty hideous, and modern cars all seem to try to be SUV’s or something. I know there exceptions, of course, but my perfect car would be something with classic styling and modern innards* (I like being able to DRIVE).
*I know it is a bit early for Christmas, but I wouldn’t be averse to a gift…..;)
