Default .....it is show time again

Took the E-M1 / ZD 9-18 to the Friday night car show for the 1st time this year.

We had some crappy sky light too and I messed up the WB..... fiddlin' with the 1 - 2 selector in an attempt to set likeable ISO, which changed rather often, I ended moving WB to 'shade' and not noticing until way too late.

AND because, for now, I only do .jpg files the only choice to change WB was to use 'click white' and most of the images had no white.

Also, I used the VF-2 on the M1 so I could maintain 'my style' shooting angles and that took some time getting used to including that the Super Control Panel does not work with the VF-2 mounted..... part of the reason I was using the 1 - 2 selector.

By the end of my stay at the show I was getting a feel for the whole contraption and all wasn't lost. However, I may pick up the E-P3 / VF-2 for Friday nights if I don't feel more comfortable with the garbenstangel in a couple outings.

Here are some images from that adventure:

......1939 Chevrolet 'business coupe'








...... 1936 Plymouth 'not many of these seen'




WB is so off ..... this interior of the '36 Plymouth IS 'gray'


...... 1950 Ford 'done really well'


...... SS Impala 'a reallly stout hoss'






......who knows what 'deal' is going on here

Beautiful stuff Bob. My fave is #3. The perfectly sharp and crisp trees reflected in the trunk lid clinched it.

some cool cars as always and not bad for first time out with the new camera! I'm sure you'll get a hang for it and be nailing it in no time, or as you say switch back to the E-P3... either way I know you'll keep showing us what the 9-18 can do.

......hey, thanks y'all for looking and your comments

Tomorrow, Wed, I'm going back to the butterfly exhibit in Ft Worth and taking my daughter and great-grandaughter. Bella is 4, loves butterflies and I will hopefully find some I didn't see the last trip there.

It will be a fun trip for sure.
