It’s Almost Car Show Season

by | Apr 11, 2014


Automobiles come in many different sizes, colors, and shapes making them ideal photographic subjects and on almost any 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.

I also plan to post what car shows that I will be attending—see below—in the hope that you can join me in an informal photo walk through the show as we make some fun photographs together.

2014 Show Schedule

June 14: Classic Rock Cruise, Castle Rock, Colorado

August 30-31: 2014 Western Colorado Classic, Grand Junction, CO

Regular Shutterbug readers know 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 you might have. Looking forward to meeting some of you at a car show this summer.
