I shot this picture of the just-introduced BMW M2 at the Detroit Auto Show. I waited patiently for a cool contrasting graphic to appear on the large screens behind the car before snapping my frame. Camera is my Mamiya C220 TLR with an 80mm f/2.8 lens, exposure shot on Fujifilm Velvia 100 slide film.
I shot this picture at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, where Ford had on display a Ford GT, a Shelby GT350, a Focus RS, a Fiesta ST, and a Raptor, all painted this wonderful shade of blue. I waited in one spot for several minutes, waiting for the turntable to move the car into position and for the screens surrounding the Ford booth to transition to blue, getting me a blue Ford GT awash in a swath of blue light. I need to go back and find the film to verify the details, but I think this image was shot with a Bronica 645 ETR with an 80mm f/2.8 lens on Kodak Portra 400.
I took a picture of this little European Ford and its owner at the Cars at Corktown car meet. As you can probably tell from the license plate, it’s a ’59 model. Photo shot on my Mamiya C220 TLR with an 80mm f/2.8 lens on Kodak Portra 400.
This Hudson’s crowning jewel is the supercharger, mounted in front of the grill for all to see. I just had to get a shot showcasing its proud presence on the outside of the car. Car was photographed when I went to the Gilmore Car Museum for the first time. Photo shot on a Mamiya C220 TLR with an 80mm f/2.8 lens on Kodak Tri-X 400.
I had to stop and take a picture of this Porsche 911 for having the most awesome (and super ’80s!) decals. Car was shot at the Cars at Corktown car meet. Picture shot on a Mamiya C220 with an 80mm f/2.8 lens on Kodak Portra 400.
I managed to snap this picture of the owner and his two kids piling into this beautiful little Porsche 356, preparing to leave the Cars at Corktown event. Photo shot on a Mamiya C220 with an 80mm f/2.8 lens on Kodak Portra 400.
Sure, there were plenty of other brand new modern sports cars on the Detroit Auto Show floor, some even sitting in the Porsche booth, but this Singer Porsche was far more captivating than almost all the other cars present. I framed the shot such that the red swoop from the Dodge booth forms a little halo around the Singer. Picture shot on a Mamiya C220 TLR with an 80mm f/2.8 lens on Kodak Portra 400.
I went to the Zoo Brew with a bunch of coworkers and brought along my TLR for the event. This is my favorite image from the evening, and fitting for the occasion. Photo shot with a Mamiya C220 TLR and an 80mm f/2.8 on Kodak Portra 400.
