Cars and Coffee Photography

     When taking photos it's always a good thing to take photos of something you're either well versed in or have a passion for.  Doing this you will have an ideal look on things you want to shoot and you can understand the intricacies of the objects in question.  For this entry, I enjoy Coffee, but I enjoy Cars a little bit more.  I'm working on trying to appreciate black coffee as of late, but that is just something you have to muscle through I feel, in due time all things will be stomached and until then Lets take a look at just some cars and the event as a whole.

     The day started early for me as I wanted to bring the Porsche out to the show.  I had never brought a car to be in a car show before, I never had anything worth showing quite honestly and this is from the mindset I've had from years of going to car shows with my father when I was younger.  But this time I had something special, my 2012 Cayman R and I was bringing my father with me this time to actually participate in the car show!  Woke up at the butt-crack of dawn to wash the car and get it ready, and I even showed up to the event somewhat early also.  I didn't really know what to do when I got there so, I parked the car and kind of walked around observing the area before even taking photos.  

Whats the flow of the traffic, Is there anyway for participants to come from another location, Are participants grouping up by type of car or unorthodox?  After walking around for a little while I was able to answer all of these questions and I was able to setup right at the entrance and get some good shots of the vehicles coming in.

After sitting in that location for about 30 minutes a what I would call Rare opportunity showed itself and I was able to get some "Street Photography" and snagged one I really liked!

Now it's about an hour or more into the event and I wanted to go and see what else was at the show and get some different looks at the cars there, try and bring an artistic look at them.

All in All, this was a good event with some good networking and I will more than likely be going every other month to view and take photos.  Something to take from this would be to take photos with passion, something you care about because then you will have a clearer outlook on what you want to do exactly.
