After a two month absence from Vintage Park, Houston Coffee & Cars returned this past Saturday to resume the monthly event. After a very brief rest from the 4th of July festivities, I got on the road to Vintage Park around 5:50am in order to get there as the sun was rising. Got there just in time and was treated to perfectly soft light as the cars began to roll in. The lots weren’t as crowded as they normally are, thanks to the 2 month break, so it was nice to be able to wander around and look at cars without a huge crowd. While there, I learned more about the upcoming Lamborghini Festival (September 13-14, 2014) and a few plans for upcoming C&C shows. All I can say is that there is some impressive machinery scheduled, so be sure to make it out the next few months!
On to the photos. Enjoy, and see you next month!
It was so great to have a brief session with little Tinley recently. She is still so small – almost three months old at the time of photos, but seemed to enjoy the session! While we were outside with her in the grass, the warm Houston summer air seemed to keep her nice and sleepy, allowing us a little time for some great shots. My favorite though, were when we went back inside to pack up and end the session. I noticed Thomas, Tinley’s dad, holding her in the soft window light and realized it was a great opportunity for a few more photos. The shots of the three of them together in the warm light are some of my favorites – great moments!
I was contacted early last month about photographing a car that Velgen Wheels sponsored locally. It is a 2013 Chevrolet Camaro sitting on Velgen’s Satin Black VMB5, staggered at 20X9 & 20X10.5. We arranged a time with the owner to shoot, and met on the day of with all of our equipment and Robert of Dabert Photography to assist with lighting. We used a great spot that is very close to downtown, where the skyline towers above only a short distance away. Using the unique elements the garage featured (circular holes cut in the roof braces, braided steel lines as barriers, etc), made for some unique compositions that ended up turning out pretty cool.
