Is it Car Show Season Yet?

Today’s Post by Joe Farace

The long answer to the above question is no and yes. The big summertime car shows are still far, far away, especially as I look out the window of my office and there’s still lots of snow on Daisy Hill today.

But on the second Saturday of each month, The Vehicle Vault in Parker, Colorado sponsors Cars & Coffee and while some winters we are blessed with wonderful weather for these events, this winter the weather has not been as kind. Yet I remain hopeful that the weather at the next event on March 14, will be better. You can find details about the show along with directions and hours on the Vehicle Vault’s calendar here. I plan on being there will again be giving away LensPen Peeps; just come up to me and say “Hi!”  I hope to see you there.

The above image was made with an Olympus E-M5 Mark I with M.14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II R lens (at 17mm) with an exposure of 1/640 sec at f/16 and ISO 400.

I51dSQSmQkFL._SX406_BO1,204,203,200_f you are a fan of Lamborghini supercars, as I am, please check out my review of the new book Lamborghini Supercars 50 Years that appears on this blog.

This beautifully printed coffee table book that features the photography of James Mann. Mr. Mann is, I think, one of the finest automobile photographers in the world and if you’ve seen his work in the wonderful English magazine Classic & Sports Cars, you know what I mean. If you’ve never see this magazine before, pick up a copy at your local Barnes & Noble and prepare to be amazed to see how a car magazine should look.

Certainly Lamborghini Supercars 50 Years is a splendid example of the sheer artistry of his work. He is also author of the sadly out-of-print (but well worth searching for) How to Photograph Cars that takes you behind the scenes showing how he creates his automotive masterworks.

Along with photographer Barry Staver, Joe is co-author of Better Available Light Digital Photograph that’s now out-of-print but new copies are available from Amazon for $21.88 with used copies selling for less than two bucks. For some reason, the Kindle price is really high.
