2014 Ballston Spa car show...The Way We Were : Once again, the weather gods smiled down and gave an excellent day. I heard the announcer, during the awards ceremony, mention that there were over 500 cars here today. Hard to believe that because you never see the entire field with the way things are laid out. This show has several challenges in shooting it well. The lighting is very high contrast and loaded with shadows...some of which can be worked around by coming back later in the day...if you remember. With the all the shadows comes much difference in color temperature and also much difference in how reflected light plays on certain paint. The color temp is also affected by the sun's position above the horizon and with this show getting an early start, there's quite a variation at mid day. Digital cameras aren't infallible about adjusting white balance, and with the huge swing in temp here, I just let it go and catch it in RAW processing rather than make custom white balance settings in camera...chances are that they would be just as hit or miss as the auto setting. At this show, I learned a bit about making do with the shadows and actually using them. One thing here that's annoying though is how tight the cars are packed in...and how little room there is after what's left is taken up by people walking through pushing double wide strollers and dragging Fido along. He really doesn't care about that gorgeous little '37 Ford two tone coupe pictured below. Really folks...leave him at home...it's hard enough not getting run over by strollers.

2014 Hemmings Concours and Cruise In at Saratoga Auto Museum : This gallery will feature images from the 2014 Hemmings Motor News Concours d'Elegance and Cruise In that takes place next to the Saratoga Auto Museum. The 27 images here are just from the Cruise In and I'll be adding another 70 something from the Concours when I get a chance to do post processing...stay tuned. Last year's show was pretty incredible and I made sure not to miss this one. The weather held quite nicely, although a bit warm. Car population for both days was probably near 300, and like last year, it just turned out to be a first class event. The Concours on Sunday is a particularly nice event to shoot because the cars are spread apart and there's more room around them. The show also has a very relaxed feel to it and you would be hard pressed to find a friendlier and nicer bunch of people than the car owners. A good time was had by all.
