Vintage Racing Photography @ Sonoma Raceway

Vintage racing is a uniqure motorsports experience. The cars are truly the stars which makes for a great photographic experience. We traveled to Sonoma Raceway on April 11 with an enthusiastic group of customers, and the support of Canon and Victory Lane to capture the excitement.

After a great day at the track the participants were invited to submit their best photos and come back to KSP to share the images.  KSP’s own Bill Graham gave a presentation on post production and we shared experiences.

Look for more Vintage Racing events coming this fall.

Limited space is still available for this unique experience. Sign up by clicking here to reserve your spot for this afternoon of fun.  —Editor

The Bay area is teeming with great opportunities to see and photograph fine automobiles. Whether your subject is race cars in their element, classics resting on freshly cut rye, or customs in a show hall, the underlying challenges are similar. What equipment do you need, how do you deal with mixed (and changing) light, and how do you find interesting viewpoints that distinguish the visually interesting elements of the car from a distracting background? Join Dave Henry, Bill Graham, and Jim Rose to learn what you need to make images that you will want to show off.

1008_pebble beach_066-Edit-Edit-2-Edit-Edit-Edit-Edit-EditWe will begin with a short presentation from Dave covering equipment and technique. Dave will then brief you on what to expect at the various shooting stations. Once participants are oriented we will quickly move to shooting stations and get to work making images. The instructors will be available to the participants to answer technical questions, make creative suggestions, and offer immediate coaching. In addition to the cars, Dave will set up small product workstations (our set is also a working winery) so that you can experiement with RF wireless flash and tilt-shift lenses.

August 21, 2005-b&w images003Once you capture a great image make sure to see your Canon rep, John Bell, and share a copy with him. Each participant’s best image will be entered in a Canon sponsored contest and contest entries will be published in a future edition of Victory Lane magazine.

Your class admission price includes lunch at the conclusion of the class. (wine is not included).
