I’ll take a break from the classic cars to show you some images I took the first day of my class. Our first location shoot was at Marathon Motors. They have a small collection of antique automobiles in various conditions of repair.
I found this building to be an interesting subject while waiting for the museum to open.
This is the same location where Antique Archeology is located. I didn’t realize until later that Antique Archeology is where the American Pickers sell there discoveries. Cool place to visit. I posted some images of their place last week.
I picked up a new camera yesterday. Really had no intentions of buying another camera but Joe McNally convinced me that I really needed this one. I have for several years, shot only full frame DLSRs. The new Nikon D500 is a “cropped sensor” DLSR with a lot of the features of the Nikon D5 at a fraction of the cost. It has a 200 shot buffer and 10 fps plus a much higher ISO tolerance then even the D4S.
So that means I have a camera for sale. I have a Nikon D750 (full frame) with the MB-D16 battery grip and two batteries. You can read the full description by clicking here. Very reasonable price and it is only a little over a year old. 🙂
I will only have it for a limited time as I do have another outlet for it. so email me if you’re interested. firstname.lastname@example.org
I will leave you with this shot from the Antique Automobile entrance. Bill Fortney has shown this subject on his blog many times and has featured it in one of his e-books. He set up the lighting for us so all we had to do was compose and shoot.
That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
