There was a pretty significant delay since my last post, especially in this Straight Out of Camera 52 series. As some of you know I had the gallery solo-exhibition, as well as some crazy stuff going on with my house and projects around that, and that doesn’t mention everything else including my 4 kids, three of which had birthdays in the last three months and the youngest turning one. So yea, we’ve been pretty busy around here lately. Somewhere in there I did have a chance to shoot some photos for this theme – Corrosion. I’m just not getting time to write this and post these.
I’ve always really loved old cars like these, with the curves and everything about this era. I don’t know precisely what kind of cars these are besides from the obvious markings, so if you know, tell me in the comments below. The photos were taken in the woods at my in-laws, and instead of choosing one out of the set, I’ll just post the whole set! So, enjoy! These are all SooC of course, with in camera settings set to increase contrast and saturation and the like, but shot to JPG. Photo info below as always.
*Update, just got word from a car friend of mine, Brandon, that this first one seems to be a 1951 Chevrolet Sedan. Looking up other photos online, if that’s not right, it’s really close.
This next one I set the picture mode back to standard because I didn’t want that much contrast, so more of the shadow would show.
A second car, clearly in the era of nuclear and rocket style design. *Update, my friend says this looks to be a 1951 Ford Custom
This is my favorite photo out of the set. I just love this dash so much.
I wish my car had such a sweet looking gauge set.
And a bonus, because I thought it looked cool in this shed
Do you have a favorite out of the set?
We are all apparently struggling to keep up with these, but take a look at the other guy’s work for an alternate view on the theme.
You can see Eje’s work here.
You can see Pete’s work here.
