Rag-top, a pearl paint job, bubble skirts, lakes pipes, Packard tail lights, frenched headlights... what more could a kid in the '50s want?
I almost missed this one. The tripod was already in the trunk when I saw it, so I grabbed a couple quick shots at minimum settings before he drove away. Being a film guy for years, I totally forgot that I could have bumped up the ISO! I also forgot to take the bright background into consideration. The car was the subject, not the sunset, right? So here's the results.
300D, Kit lens, ISO 200, RAW, Manual everything.
1/80 sec, f-4.5, FL= 18mm.
This is a jpeg from the umprocessed RAW file. Nice, huh?
These are the results after processing RAW +2.0 exposure into tiffs, & the usual PS work.
