I love them to death, they are a big big part of my heritage......+1 Great shots... I couldn't really care less about hot rods either, (or cars generally, in fact), but I really enjoyed these photos.
You can only denigrate your own skills for so long while you're putting up work like this (and many in past months). Your license for self-deprecation is dangerously close to it's expiration date! Nice work Lucille!
The thing about technical knowledge is it only matters to the extent you need to to get the results you want. If you decide to try something you haven't tried before and you find your current techniques don't get you there, then you'll figure out what you need to do to get it done. You'll make mistakes and learn from them and figure out what you need. But if you don't want to do any different sort of shooting than you're already doing, you don't need to worry about it.The thing about it Ray, is I don't post much, but I read yours and many others on all of Amins forums, and I realize what little I know about the whole photography gig, and how much room I have to grow..... I seem to do things most don't or speak out against, such as never shooting in raw, under exposing on purpose, never using a viewfinder, ect.
