Shooting a car show is an adventure. When we first started The Ranchero and the Blue Q it was just about taking photos of cars for the fun of it. There was no reasoning and there still isn’t, in a way we are just striving for better photos to represent the cars with the least amount of noise surrounding it. Taking photographs at car shows is not easy especially because car shows come with a lot of challenges, so we are putting out a few things we have learned about car shows and the art of catching the ride with a digital camera. We make no claim to being professionals, this is truly from an amateur point of view but in taking a look at the photos we send out, in the hope that you and the owners of the ride will like the final results, we thought passing along a few notes would be fun. This will give an opportunity to reflect on past car show and the journey. At the end of the series we will post the full breakdown but for now, catch a car show and enjoy the ride.
