Mirrorless Car Photography

Route 30 Classics

1/400 sec at f/8 and ISO 200

I hope that you can excuse me for taking a week off from writing anything technical. This time of year in the Pacific Northwest when it starts to get light earlier and doesn’t get dark until almost much later than pre-Daylight Savings time. It’s hard to not just want to take a drive and shoot some photos with my mirrorless camera.

Last week my friend Art invited me out to meet a couple of the members of his car club in Hood River, Oregon. I photographed Art a couple of months ago in his 1953 MG TD and you can see the hybrid video I made on Joe’s car photography website. This time we meet at the Route 30 Classics Vintage Porsche parts store located in Mosier, Oregon along with the owners of an Austin Healey 100C and a Porsche 356.

I shot both stills and video of the cars, which is so easy with the live view on mirrorless cameras. I’ll share the still images with you today and the video sometime in the futire. Most of the photos were taken with a Lumix GH3 and the beautiful Lumix 7-14mm lens.—Mark Toal
