Desert Run

Yeah thas what I’m talkin’ ’bout! There’s this famous tourist stop in Arizona that everyone snaps and I’m no exception. The difference is I got a bewdy of a Ford Model-T Speedster – how cool is that car. Imagine tooling along in an open car that doesn’t weigh much more than you do. Open air – zipping along like the ultimate Rat-Rod – that’s the life! I shot this little nob with me famous Canon G11 – using RAW settings to garner the greatest data for pix quality. Shot multiple exposures bracketed (-1,0,+1) and processed with help from Fotomatix Pro and then worked me magic thereafter in PhotoShop. Oh Yeah, wide angle lens (6mm) 1/250th sec., f/4, iso 80 and who knows what else – besides blending or manipulating the whole scenario and image – what fun! Man it is great getting out on the open road – stopping here and there to get pix and heading on down that white line – that ol’ highway’s-a-callin’ – get out there – make pictures ~:0) VivaChas!
