Photograph of a Vintage Blue Car Fin
The Blue Car Fin photograph was taken at a Vintage Car show in Nanaimo, BC. Taking photographs at car shows are difficult due to so many people. There are always people walking right into the shot. Or reflections of them on the chrome or other shiny spots.
I concentrate on the fine details of the vehicles. Taking a photograph of the piece of the car that stands out. This one doesn’t have any reflections of people in the background. Prints range in size from 5″ x 7″ to 24″ x 33″. Minimal cropping may occur.
Choose the finish of the photograph you prefer.
Glossy – Highly reflective photo paper, easily shows fingerprints, no texture, bold and bright colors, may stick to glass, but has great clarity and skin tones.
Matte – Smooth finish photo paper, non-glare, will not easily show fingerprints, and professional looking. Deep matte is a favorite among many photographers.
Lustre – This photo paper is semi-gloss, industry standard and has true to life skin tones. With the slight gloss, it helps enhance the details and colors in the image. The lustre ‘texture’ helps with fingerprints and glare.
I photograph whatever interests me at the time. Sometimes, it’s a rusty lock on a chain that looks so old that it wouldn’t dare be opened. Other time, it’s capturing the pure joy in someone’s face when they see a long time lover, or a new addition to the family. It could be the shape of a body and how the sweat glistens in the light in such a way you can almost feel the muscles aching underneath the skin.
I love that I have an amazing tool that enables me to freeze a moment in time. I am grateful for my camera that allows me to take what I see and share for all to see. In addition, I found my first love at 13. I wasn’t always able to give it my full attention and love, but it was there for me when I had time to appreciate it. My camera has been my true friend and has always stuck with me. I have upgraded her but her essence has always been there.
