Default ....a weekend with the E-M1 & FT 14-54

I did the event photography for the Arlington arts festival Mar 21-23 http://tinyurl.com/pnfkr77. The camera lens combo was E-M1 and FT 14-54 for 99% of the work.

I did use the P3/FT9-18 for some of the cars photos but it was the 14-54 that overall got it done for the weekend.

This 1940 V-12 Lincoln Zephyr convertible and '55 Buick were presented by an event sponsor (a TV show Reality Rides). The principals of the show which is of the restoration/buildup of the cars are people I know and I see the '55 Buick often at the local Friday evenings show.

The 1940 Lincoln though was likely a one-time see so I made what I could of the opportunity. I met the car owner (not the person in the picture, that is Carl of the TV show, his shop crew built the car from rust up, the '55 Buick too) who has quite a nice collection including some late '30s Packard and Cord cars.

I did not get an invite to see the private collection though it was a part of the TV show for delivery of the Zephyr. I was invited to come to the Reality Rides shop for a visit, it in nearby Red Oak, TX USA so I will try to fit that in one day.

...........this is a shot of the '40 Lincoln at the arts festival. To see the gallery of it 'click on the photo'.

Nice shots Bob. The Buick sure brings back memories of when my dad bought a brand new 56 Buick Special. God that thing was a monster compared to most cars now days. And what!!!!!!!!!! No CD player in the Lincoln.

a really enjoyable set Bob, that Zephyr is mint and you did a fine job shooting it. I also agree that the 14-54 can cover about 99% of normal shooting, it is a fine piece of glass and great that it is getting new life on your e-m1, I can't wait to pair mine with an e-m1 too, although the mark II I have does well on the Pen's too.

Thanks for the compliment, 'twas a fun weekend for sure, I really enjoy shooting the arts festival. It was our 3rd year for it and getting to know so many of the artists makes for much easier photography of their displays.

For the cars, the Lincoln has just finished restoration and was a star of a TV show (Reality Rides) produced/directed a fellow I've known for a while now.

For the Lincoln I used both the M1/14-54 & E-P3/FT9-18...... the 9-18 is still the king o'cars for me.

Thumbs up

Top notch as usual Bob. While I enjoyed going thru the whole set, I did notice that you did not frame one of the shots correctly; or did you mean to show yourself as the headless photographer?? LOL.

...tnx Steven, this is awful, it should never made the cut. I wish this could be redone but I likely will never see the car again so I've a decision to make for this photo...... It probably will go away at some time.

I just trashed that file! lol
