    Fontana California, I would have to say this is one of my favorite events next to Bonneville.

    What camera are you using? Auto fill flash? My old Sony's flash has been dead for years and it's only 5 mp, so I need to update soon! Gary
     
  11. Very nice pics!
     
  12. Quick question. In the first pic did you pan along with the car to blur the background or was it done in editing ?

    The Camera I use is a what is called a "prosumer" camera. Its a Canon 5D MKII. It runs about 2,800, the zoom I use runs about 1,800 and the flash about 450. Yes I do use fill flash, it helps to kill the shadows cast by the bright sun. Its not an auto flash though, it mounts to the hot shoe and has more features than I will ever need. If your serious about getting a high end camera you cant go wrong with Canon or Nikon.

    A magician never reveals his secrets. Panning with a slower shutter speed yields some great results.

    Thanx for the info... but it's a little pricey for me and I think that's about the amount I need to finish the 27! But I'll keep it in mind for later, after that cute rich girl I know proposes. Gary

    I havent attended the Antique Nationals since the mid 70's. Do they still offer an 8 car open for the fastest flathead rails?

    Great pictures! All of them!

    Were you using a fixed lens for the above shots??

    Im not sure what you mean by fixed lens. Do you mean prime lens? I was using my Wide angle and my zoom lens. Take one off and slap on another.

    Fixed length. No zoom, is what I mean. Yes. Prime lens. Thanks... Just curious. Cool pics!

    No, I've never really used prime lenses. I like the fact that prime lenses have amazing DOF and are super quick, but my zoom opens to f2.8 which makes it fast enough for me under most lighting conditions.

    I use a 70-200 zoom
    and 20-35 zoom

    both are 77mm lenses. Hope that helps in any way.
