#SooC52 Week 30 – Corrosion

Chris Lane / photography / / 1 Comment

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.

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.

#Sooc52 Week 11 – Tire

Chris Lane / photography / / 2 Comments

If you are following along, you will see I double posted, but I made them separate. This gets me caught up and I can get to next week’s photo on schedule as normal. So this week’s photo subject is “tire.” I chose this because John said


So I gave him his chance! Then he said he’s out of town this week. Woe is him haha! But I did say that the word could be interpreted to mean either a tire on a car or fatigue or whatever, since it’s one of those weird English words that spelled the same with different meanings aka homonyms.

I wasn’t really sure what I was going to do for this, but since I was playing with car toys for my auto shot, I decided I’d show a Hot Wheels car on top of a real car tire. I’m not really that satisfied with this, though. The vehicle is fairly similar to the one I am shooting on, but this spare tire on the back of the jeep is not remotely the same as the big knobby tires that are mounted. But the rest of the jeep is completely buried in a snow drift, so I couldn’t get to the knobbly tires. Oh well. So here it is.

The loose plastic window on the back of the softop made an interesting light texture on the back, but otherwise this photo is very “meh” in my opinion. I’ll try do better next time! Feel like I’ve been rushing these since I got behind.

And the rest of the crew:

Lost and dying old Ford

Chris Lane / photography / / 2 Comments

This is an antique Ford, though I’m not sure exactly what, that took place in a family photo shoot I had a few weeks ago. It was left in the back field rotting away. It’s unfortunate, because it could be, or would have been, such a beautiful vehicle. I think this one in particular might be beyond repair, though. But it made a great Friday photo (#23 or so) in my 52 week project. In this case, I reduced the saturation to almost have no color at all, but left just a little to reflect the dying/fading nature of this car. Let me know what you think in the comments.
