Shooting Reflections at a Car Show

Today’s Post by Joe Farace

One of the things that Mary likes to photograph when we attend car shows are reflections in cars that have lots of chrome.

So I though it would be fun to photograph her reflected in the injector hood of this hot rod at the annual Classic Rock Cruise‐In Car Show in Castle Rock, Colorado. It’s  an underhood shot of a hot rod was made with a Panasonic Lumix GF3 and Olympus 17mm f/2.8 lens. And to answer your question: Yes, she posed for the shot.

The 10th Annual Classic Rock Cruise‐In Car Show will be held Saturday, June 16, 2018,  the Saturday before Fathers Day. The show is organized and produced by a partnership of the Vintage Car Club and the Castle Rock Downtown Merchants Association and transforms historic downtown Castle Rock into a showplace for all kinds of cool cars, hot rods and trucks. The main streets are closed for the day so that more that 300 entries can be displayed by their proud owners and admired by thousands of spectators.
