    A lot of people look past Dave's T, but the craftsmanship that went into it is amazing. He made everything on the car. From all the bodywork (note the cab corners that were fabbed from VW fenders) to the frame he crafted starting with chalk on his garage floor. And I bet it gets driven more than any car out there.

    ^^ Looks like no windscreen or interior so I'm guessing it's all steel? With the chrome on? Even an apprentice painter could spot the flaw. New door skin?

    You are on the right track, it was not a finished car and the mismatched panels were merely two different "shades" of bare steel. I couldn't tell you what the point of the exhibit was.

    Tom, some outstanding photography. Do you use tripod and some form of flash, if so what kind of flash

    some of your shots are very bright but not over done for being indoors. (wish I had your talent for shooting).

    I prefer to shoot most of the time using a tripod, which allows longer exposure and depth-of-field control. I was unable to use the tripod much of the time at GNRS this year, however.

    I am experimenting with flash in order to allow me to fill in shadows when that would be appropriate, but I have yet to master it. I can get accurate color with my equipment using an adequatey long exposure (as much as 10-12 seconds), but sometimes more light is needed for instead for accuracy.

    I also do after-camera work on some of my shots and have a few tricks of my own.

    Thanks. Your car came out so nice. I was disappointed that my shots of it weren't more outstanding, but there were many really good shots of it taken by others and posted on the HAMB.

    Your Vic is a "Rodder's Journal Feature Custom" if I ever saw one. May it happen.

    Tom, thanks for the insight on how you get your shots. I took a tripod one time to the show and decided it was a hassle, unless used on set up day with fewer people.

    Is this the 56 that was stolen from the car park?

    I once shot a bunch at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show (GNRS for bikes basically) and had good luck. The lighting appears to have been a bit better, but should be similar. What I did:

    - Nikon D300 with 18-200 VR lens
    - Note the VR lens - that was a HUGE advantage
    - ISO 400 - could easily be set higher for less light indoors
    - F-stops as low as I could go to still get the shot I wanted. I think I went f/8 max. Obviously bikes are easier in this regard since they're somewhat 2-dimensional compared to cars, so a smaller depth of field is no big deal.
    - Take multiple frames for each shot, especially on lower shutter speeds like 1/8. I would take 5-6 and usually at least one would be ok.

    Below are a couple, first one was 1/8 sec shutter. EXIF data's still there so if you save it you can view the camera settings.

    PS: Tom, thanks a ton for the pics. I know that's a time consuming effort, sorting through thousands for a hundred or so. Great shots.
