A reproduction of the good ole car hop days on this bright yellow ’57 Chevy.

Nikon D-300
Nikkor AF-S 16-85mm at 30mm
1/1000 sec at f/8
f/8 gave too much depth of field. I selected the background and added gausian blur to help de-clutter the image.

I’ve been enjoying photography since getting my first Kodak Hawkeye at age 9. I graduated to a Kodak 110, a Pentax Spotmatic and an Olympus OM-2n before finally breaking down and going digital in ’03 with a 3.2M Sony DSC-P71. Since then I moved up to a Canon A700, a Nikon D300, a Canon 60D, A Nikon D600 and finally a Nikon D800E.
