From the tiny rochester auto show this year, I need to get out to detroit next year
Nice, what lens did you use for them?
all of them except number 4 were with my sigma 10-20, the 4th with my new 18-200 vr
All really nice, except number 4, not really a big fan of the angle (although the car is fantastic). I think number three is my fav, reminds me of some old racing posters we used to have in my basement
Is number 5. a refelction shot on the car. Just kinda looks like one lol.
Haha yea it does
What do you mean? The camera was almost on the ground with a 10mm lens on...
Nice shots, it's really difficult to get a good shot at the autoshow, because of the lighting and the reflection of all the lights from the cars. I am hired to shoot for one of the team at the autoshow next month and i heard about avoiding FLASH at all cost and bring faster lens. I am going to buy the 50mm f1.4 and either the 10-20mm sigma or the 10-22mm canon. Is there anything else i need to get or pay attention to when shooting? Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
This was my first year with my 18-200 VR, which was very useful (due to static subjects), and the sigma 10-20mm worked great. I used the 10-20mm for a lot of the shots because it allowed me to get very close to the cars (so people don't walk in front of your shot), the only downside is that you do get some distortion at 10mm... but by 12mm most of it is gone... just be careful at things around the edges of the photo. A 50mm f1.4 would work good but your not going to get many pictures of entire cars... unless no people go to your autoshow.
the top left area of #2 looks skewed
Thats normal considering the fact that its an ultra-wdie lens. This is easy to PS out, if you want. I tend to likethat skew effect some.
I also like car shows a lot and do them every chance I can get.
cool shots, wish they had cars like that locally for me to shoot though
It just looks like the a cars reflection a lil bit. because on the top left corner you can see a hand and camera lens and it kinda looks like you can see trough the hands lol.
