Hey guys, yesterday I went to the Canadian International Autoshow. I’m not a huge car buff but I do go to get some sport or industrial photography done under fantastic spotlight lighting. I really think conventions are really great environments for beginner photographers to hone their skills. I’m not a super professional photographer but I do remember getting bringing my first DLSR, a Nikon D60, to the auto show in 2010. You cannot work with Program automated settings at an auto show, the lighting just doesn’t permit it. Each area is lit according to their own exhibits and cars, as well, each colour reflects light in its own way. As a result, I was forced to switch knobs to Manual mode… and that’s how I learned how to adjust my own camera settings.
I hope you guys like these photographs, I tried to be more selective this year with what I was photographing but you can only find so many interesting angles at a convention while avoiding all the heads and random photo-bombers. This was taken with my trusty Nikon D3100 and a Sigma 17-70mm macron lens and nothing was edited.
Hope you guys liked this post and I will talk to you all soon!
What are you pondering today?
