Join Me at the April 2016 Cars & Coffee

Today’s Post by Joe Farace

The next Cars and Coffee informal car show in Parker, Colorado will be held at the Vehicle Vault (address below) on April 9, 2016. Hope to see you there for an informal PhotoWalk. I’ll be there close to 9:00 and usually hang around for at least an hour or slightly more.

For a change of pace, I’ll be bringing either a Panasonic Lumix G5 or G6—don’t know which yet—that has been converted for infrared capture by LifePixel. I’ve shot cars with infrared-converted cameras before; you can read about it here.  I would shoot Cars & Coffee in infrared just to see what happens.

If you would like to see how this whole infrared things works, you can borrow the camera to make a few shots (on your own SD cards.)


Event details:

  • Starts: 9:00 am
  • Ends: – 12:00 pm
  • Location: Vehicle Vault 18301 Lincoln Meadows Parkway Parker, Colorado 80134

Further north in the Denver area, Cars and Coffee Boulder/Lafayette has events, they call ‘monthly sportscar meets’ on the first Saturday of the month.

Life Pixel does a great job with IR conversions and have done most of the conversions for my Canon DSLRs and all of my Panasonic Lumix G-series cameras. This is not a paid or sponsored endorsement, just my experience.

My book, The Complete Guide to Digital Infrared Photography is currently out-of-print but used copies are available from Amazon for $7.07 as I write this. Creative Digital Monochrome Effects has a chapter on IR photography and is available from Amazon with used copies starting at $7.74.
