O/T - Antique Car Hood Ornaments

I work with knife photography 99% of the time there is a camera in my hand. That said, we all like to branch out and experiment.

One of the cool things I have 'focused' on is shooting hood ornaments at the classic car shows I attend (following around my Grandfather-in-law with his pair of boattail coupe Bugatti's from the twenties.)

These were taken with my Canon 5D and a 100mm fixed lense. I kept the aperture at f2.8 to provide the blurry background (pro term: 'Bokeh') which gives them prominence.

Like I do in my knife photography, I will focus on an object and then swing away slightly to capture the scene out of dead center. Very effective quick method. You will see.











More coming....

This was fun to shoot. The 100mm lense is near perfect, as most of these autos were behind a rope, and I could stand away about six feet. Full-length shots had too much scene corruption.

Thanks for checking them out.

Coop, Thanks for sharing those pictures. It is very nice to see your photographic work that we normally don't get a chance to view.

Mike's 41 Ford Panel that is in need of restoration. It belonged to his Grandfather who purchased it new and it has been used for a pick up/delivery vehicle for a dry cleaning business. It has only 1 seat. Taken with 5D mark ll & 35 1.4 @ 2.2.

Those are awesome Coop. I think you've got the makings of a seriously marketable calendar there, or similar uses - or a gallery showing. Yes!

Barbara - Nice shot and nice old Ford!

My own meager contribution:
