Slick's Garage With Suncoast Camera Club

A few months ago, I was asked to speak at the Suncoast Camera Club in Bradenton, about black and white photography. Along with speaking, I also was asked to do a hands on photo-walk. I wanted the members to go outside their comfort zones, and challenge them to try some more abstract compositions. I thought that taking the group to Slick's Garage in Palmetto would offer plenty of opportunities to get creative with subject matter and composition. Slick has an incredible collection of beat up and weathered vehicles of all kinds. Even though I was concentrating on giving instruction, I managed to get a few shots in.

Devereaux-Kaiser Car Meet

Ever forget a crucial piece of equipment, memory card, tripod etc.? I arrived at Florida's largest car show, and while putting all my equipment together I realized that I had left my battery on the charger at home. After having traveled all that way, I was determined to get some photos. I pulled out my Iphone (which was also low on batteries), and got to work.
