RockNRides

A few weekends back I stopped by a small car show in Cedar Park. The RockNRides show benefitted a high school band and there was a decent turnout. Most of the cars were a little too late model for my tastes though. I gravitate to the art deco styled classics and the rat rods. While there weren't many of these at this show, I did enjoy walking around and getting in a little car photography. 

I've been experimenting again with the Moondog Labs anamorphic adapter for my iPhone 6. It was a little over a year ago that I picked it up and I realized that I hadn't done much with it lately. While I had my Fuji X100F with me, I ended up snapping images solely with the iPhone. I have to say, I do love the wide aspect ratio for my photos and the anamorphic adapter gets it for me on the iPhone without having to crop anything away. It's a cool trick.

Using a wide point of view like this, it is tempting to go for the big picture - full body shots of cars. I do that a lot and so this time I pushed myself to look closer for interesting details, reflections, and different angles. Luckily it was an overcast day, which made the latter a little easier. My complaint with shooting by LCD in daylight is that it makes composition difficult when bright sunlight drowns out the display. 

Here are a few details that caught my wandering eye. All were taken with the iPhone and the Moondog Labs lens using the Blackie camera app. More shots from the show can be found on my gallery page.
