About the Image(s)

This photo was taken at a local car show with my Olympus/OM-D E-M5 Mark III, which is lighter than my Canon, so I can hold it over the car and use the flipped-out LCD screen to take the photo. I used a wide-angle lens at 9.00mm (18mm in 35mm); 1/400 sec; f/7.1; ISO 200; no flash. In Photoshop, I did some fixes to remove distracting reflections, adjust lighting, dodge/burn areas, and apply two Color Lookup/3DLUT Files to further adjust the coloring to be unique, eye-catching, and a bit more abstract. I attend several car shows every summer and have been trying different angles for shots, including holding my camera above my head and putting my camera on the ground to tilt up towards the subject with a wide-angle lens. While I like the unique angles, my goal is to reduce the Photoshop fixing time to remove distracting reflections, backgrounds, and people who continually step into my shots (and stand there).
