Cars and Coffee Winter 2020

Today’s Post by Joe Farace

Car show season may be over but Cars and Coffee events remain a popular year round event for all of us car enthusiasts. The Vehicle Vault in Parker, Colorado partnered with Cars and Coffee to host this popular social gathering series that is held at their location on the second Saturday of each month, including this coming Saturday.

Since Parker’s Cars and Coffee is a only a short drive from home, I try to make it to the show every month, emphasis on try. I was at the jam-packed event last month where I made the photographs shown here using a Canon’s mirrorless EOS M6 Mark II with a Sigma 56mm F/1.4 lens. You can read more about the lens here and see an image I made of a new Toyota Supra at that same show. Exposure for the above shot was 1/640 sec at f/7.1 and ISO 320. If you’re interested in the camera as well, you can read my Shutterbug review of the camera here.

How I made this shot: I photographed this one-owner first generation VW GTI at the December, 2019 Cars & Coffee using a Canon EOS M6 Mark II and Sigma 56mm F/1.4 lens with an exposure of1/800 sec at f/8 and ISO 320.

This Saturday I’ll be parking my —Mary’s car actually— and hope to see you at the show as well. Special Note: I will be having a free giveaway at this coming Saturday’s Cars & Coffee event; don’t miss Friday’s blog post for details.
