I have manage to edit some of my digital shots from the Classic Car show I visited the other week. There is a mix of cars and portraits, I noticed that this year I shot far more people shots than cars which showed me the way my photography is starting to go.
I really like shooting people be it portraits or just candidly in the street and since getting back into film that is what I want to do more than any other photography.
I still like the look I get when tone mapping Classic cars, this type of look is not appreciated by everyone but I like it….lol

We went to the “Cardiff after Cardiff” exhibition at the Wales Millennium Centre this weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it, I love Street Photography and this was right up my street as they say.
Here is a link to the exhibition http://www.wmc.org.uk/Productions/2012-2013/18969/79765/?view=Standard
Here is the link to the blog that explains how this exhibition came about http://cardiffbeforecardiff.tumblr.com/
After the viewing we walked around the bay looking for photo opportunities using my film camera and my D7000 and Tamron 17-50 f2.8 and immediately came across a great couple sitting down enjoying an ice cream. I didnt want to shoot them candidly so I asked if they were up for a portrait and they gladly obliged 🙂
The main image at the top of the blog is of the Seamen’s Memorial Sculpture created by Brian Fell to the sailors of the Merchant Navy who lost their lives crossing the Atlantic Ocean during the Second World War and the building in the background is the Pierhead Building built in 1897 as the headquarters for the Bute Dock Company.
All in all it was a cheap afternoon out and I am looking forward to getting my film back to see the results, Cardiff Bay is a great place to shoot street stuff.
