National Photo Month: “Name that Car” Contest

by | May 5, 2020

Today’s Post by Joe Farace

How I made this shot: I photographed this mystery car at Cars & Coffee sponsored by the Vehicle Vault, in Parker, Colorado. In keeping with the Mirrorless Month theme, the camera used was my Olympus E-M5 Mark I with Olympus M.14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II R lens (at 41mm) with a Program mode exposure of 1/800 at f/11 and ISO 320.

Today’s contest is simple: You need to name the manufacturer and model of the car.  Extra points for the model but the brand will win the below prize. The first person to “Name that Car” by responding via the Contact page (no other form of contact will be valid for the contest) will be the winner. Hint: The front end of this car, which has its name prominently displayed, has appeared in a previous post about Cars & Coffee on this very blog.

The prize with be a LensPen Elite that useful for cleaning smudges off your lenses or camera filters. I keep one of them in all of my camera bags and backpacks. The LensPen has a retractable natural hair brush that’s useful for knocking off chunks of dust from your photo gear and has a soft chamois-like tip on the other end for removing smudges. The carbon based cleaning compound it uses reduces electrostatic charges that attract dust to a lens’s surface and will replenish itself after each use. Since it doesn’t require any cleaning fluid or lens tissue, a LensPen creates no trash.

Yes, LensPen is one of this blog’s sponsors, in fact they are its oldest sponsor and I want to thank them for their support. But you should know that I have been using LensPen’s wonderful products for more than 20 years, long before I had any of my blogs.
