Photo Of The Day #91

By pure incident we came across an old-timer show and as we were…

packed with camera gear there was no way out. We had to shoot some of this amazing old cars.

Though we hadn’t much time for this I wanted to have some decent images. After a few shots I didn’t like the light circumstances. It was a bright and sunny day and of course if I had the exposure spot on for the car the sky would been totally blown out.

I knew I could solve this with flash so I did this. As there was nobody around to hold my flash for me, so that I could shoot off-camera I decided to go the easy way with on-camera flash in ETTL mode.

It worked pretty well. The ETTL did quite a good job here. I have to say that I love this picture even though I find the cars surrounding my main subject a little disturbing. But this is what I got and there was no way that the car would have been separated from the others just for me having a better composition.

Sometimes you just have to take what it’s there.
