Just too nice not to capture this image
This car sat right next to my booth on Sunday. It was screaming to be photographed. This is one of my favorites from the car. The light and reflection of trees in the chrome makes it almost magical. Well in my opinion! I hope you agree. Any feedback is appreciated.
As with so many cars at the show this one brought back memories for my childhood. This was the car of the Rich and Famous in my teen years. I could never hope to own one (still can’t) but they were very refined and lovely cars for their day. Today they are just plain old classy.
P.S. jpeg HDR conversion, nine shots +/-3EV. Done in HDR Efex2 by nik. Color Effex4 chrome correction, and finished in Perfect Effects 8.
Imagine this as a 16×20 metal!
EHW Photography took home 3rd place in the 2D art category at the Roswell Art Festival! There were over ninety vendors total, and over twenty outstanding 2D vendors. So I am thrilled to receive this recognition for the hard work of my little crew.
It was a good weekend meeting great people. Our next show I hope will be with the ROMEOS on the first Sunday in October in East Cobb, and then Octane on Caffine on the third Sunday of October. I will also be setting up personal car shoots with many people I met this weekend. I hope to show you that working the coming months!
Much more later…but for now I’m still excited and recovering from the long weekend.

A fast start….
The Roswell Art Festival is on Saturday and Sunday! Come on down and enjoy over 100 vendors selling just about everything from lemonade, paintings, metal works and pictures like mine! I’m also a little nervous since it is a festival with a set of judges looking for best of show. Don’t know how I’ll fair there.
Take at look at the homepage and you’ll see my Fall Portfolio. If there is a gift you need for Christmas…you just might find it! Check my online store and you’ll find everything you need!
Something not in the portfolio? Is it in the archives? Well call me and I’ll make it for you! You want your own car, family or event photographed? Give me a call! It would be darn fun to make something for you!
A little memory of childhood fun
Walking through Old Car City an International Harvester pickup sat thinking of glorious days long past…and I thought of shifting my first gears at the age of 7 or so…
See we once had a 1970 Scout, made by IH. It was the fancy model with dual gas tanks and a four speed manual transmssion. It ran on anything according to my Dad. It was pretty smooth going to school down Poverty Lane (yes there is such a road in West Lebanon, N.H.) It was so smooth in fact that my Dad could drink his coffee in an open cup while changing gears!
I know you are now asking how do you drink coffee nicely when you are driving a stick shift? Well that is of course easy when you deploy your optional automatic child transmission to shift on command. I think my Dad was WAY ahead of his time. I mean this transmission was voice activated! “Second! Third! Fourth!…slowing down now Four, Three, Two…….stop…First!” Google car eat your heart out!
I was the proudest second grader on the planet when I got to school. Not only was my Dad the ONLY Army officer in the state, the only one to understand how to build a Army standard bunker…but I was the ONLY child shifting gears of an automobile!
P.S. As for the image this is my first image in the Fall Collection. After reading the HDR Book by RC (www.aboutRC.com) I went back to work on several older photos. Using new ideas, tools and skills many images found themselves re-invented…and much improved. That is the beauty of digital and art…it can grow with you if you challenge yourself from time to time to not live on your laurels. This will be available for purchase on 12×12 metallic floating mount for $115 by the end of the week. Larger sizes available on request…I promise you will not be disappointed..Why later? I am awaiting the proof copy right now to make sure it is just the way I want it!
