    Went to this car show

    This Calloway, never seen one in person, makes me wish I was younger and had a boatload of money.

    This very subtle flame job, not in the George Barris style, impressed me a lot.

    Supposedly, your desire to own the Calloway is a few years away (40-55 years), so start saving now. Nicely done on the Calloway.

    Stunning images. I'm curious as to how you photographed the red portion of the car, all red (nothing blown) and full of reflections, highlights and details.

    Thank you.

    A couple of years ago when I was trying to learn all that exposure nonsense I kept believing that there had to be an easier way...well bucko, there is and it's called live view. Chimp your image in LV with your RGB histogram showing>input 2 of the 3 wanted/needed camera settings and push that histogram toward the right, but not touching the right side, using the third setting. Oh, because that histogram is jpeg based, you must first neutralize, base out, all of your "picture style" settings that you may have set for your jpeg images.
    I use this technique all the time and I take the time to repeat if the light changes. Also, when I'm shooting a black dog/white snow scenario, I'll shoot a properly exposed virgin image of the snow followed by properly exposed dog romping around and blend them later in PS.
    Yeah, it's sounds complicated, but rapidly becomes second nature.

    Thank you Chauncey,

    I tried photographing red flowers (just the red close-up) and it was not easy... I have yet to try live view on my camera but I will check it out.

    Black and white tip, duly noted... I do intend to learn to use layers.

    Thank you.

    Truly appreciated.

    Reckon if we put our combined fortunes together we might rent one for a day? Like the Calloway (image and car) but not sure about the second but I'm guessing that the second is really only for illustration.

    I like the 2nd image, simply for the gorgeous light, colour and reflections.
