Chapter 5: Subjects to Photograph
Often show cars are paraded behind velvet ropes, so tight framing is required using a zoom lens. Instead of using fl ash, bring a compact refl ector with you. There is generally enough
lighting at these shows to provide perfect illumination with the refl ector without overexposing the subject with fl ash. If you can get close enough, use a macro, wide-angle, or even a fi sheye
lens with a tripod. All this equipment may seem awkward, but the result is truly satisfying. Besides, the cars are there to be admired.
