Car Guys

The thrill of being just inches from your subject! It was warm and dusty at the Back to the 50s event on the Minnesota fair grounds last night. I decided to use an old camera and my cheapest lens, the 50 mm 1.8. I wasn’t there to shoot cars, I like people better! I traveled light and I got to know my subjects up close and personal. I had a blast! Here are some of my favorite shots:

My favorite shot!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely photos. I look forward to your blogs each day to see what you’re getting into. I love the challenge you have set yourself with the 50mm. You make it look so easy.


  2. Excellent captures, Valerie! Love the angle of the light and the genuineness of their expressions. Particularly powerful presented in BW rather than color – gives it a timeless feel. Well done!
