Shooting With the Coupes (pt 1)

I should have a few of these posts up in the next few days, I got some great shots when I went out shooting with a couple or five guys in the local Genesis Coupe Community (and one Nissan 370z hitchhiker).

So, I already posted one black & white so lets do a few more, eh?

2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe

I love high-contrast automotive photography. So, when I went out with a few of the guys in the local ‘coupe group, I knew I’d be shooting some B&W high-contrast.

What I’d forgotten, the last year, is that the high-contrast work gets more interesting when you get down to changing the temperature of the black & white shot.

And this is where I ended up.

Black & White: From Above

One more from my shoot the other day. I wanted to separate this one, because it feels different.

As always, I love my high-contrast black & white:

Hanging with the Dog II

One last one, in b&w this time.

A lot less motion here, but really picks up my lil’ buddy’s personality, I think. And, that, despite that he’s two, and has his full adult-growth now, he’s still very, very much a puppy.


ISO 800, f/3.2, 1/250th

More Black & White…

… And a little Depth of Field to go with it.

And yes, it’s another picture of my niece, shot with my favorite 50mm f/1.8. I wanted to ge tthis shot, but it’s not quite the way I wanted it, if that sounds right? It’s still good, but it’s not what I saw in my head.

Old Shots: Fingers on the Neck

fingering b&w

another old b&w. The bar I shot in was so dark, and I didn’t want to use flash, that I had to jack the ISO a lot. On my even-then-getting-old Nikon D70s, ISO 640 and higher means ever-noticable noise. Still, it’s good shot, and I think the grain adds something to the b&w as well. Over the years, I’ve been tempted to push the contrast further, but maybe it’s not necessary.
