    This doesn’t really qualify as street photography, although they were on the street… Feel free to move or delete!

    We have several car shows every year, but every three years Northwest Deuce Days comes to town. This is a big show (over 1300 registered vehicles this year) and the best part for the public is the show on Sunday as classic cars take over much of the downtown area. Some people try to see every car, but I admit I get overwhelmed and try to find something unique within those I photograph. Here are a few of them.

    Grill - 1934 Plymouth Coupe
    Setting Sail - 1934 Plymouth Coupe
    Would You Look at That!?!? – 1933 Ford Coupe
    Dancer – 1933 Ford Coupe
    Willys – 1940 Willys Tudor Sedan

    Two more:

    Reflections - 1940 Ford Coupe
    Pinstripe – 1933 Ford Deluxe Convertible Coupe

    All of these were made with a Sony A7R III and the 24-105mm lens; processed in C1 and sometimes Affinity Photo.

    Mike.

    Sounds like a very cool show!

    I like these, they land in a sort of confusing zone between abstraction and documentation. Very attractive, and fun to examine.

    Nice job on these images. I am a firm believer in the picture in the picture.  On cars like this, you can see so many possibilities for images.  Different angles.  Isolation of subject.  Lighting and color.  Well done.  May I suggest you look up or google Micahel Furman.  he’s one of the finest car photographers there is in my opinion.  Back when I was shooting for a living he and I worked on some joint projects.  His vision of cars and skills in lighting and composition are second to none.

    Here’s a link.  Scroll down to see all Micahel’s books.  He did a great book just on hood ornaments and Jewelry.  He just published a new book which we will review in the future.
