Pics of the Salem Steel Valley car cruise

I went to the Steel Valley Nationals car crusie in dowtown Salem, Ohio for some street photography. There was a large croud like there is every year. There was no burnout pit. I knew someday that would come to an end since the tire smoke devowered the houses across the street. Good food, nice machines and plenty to take pitures of. Click HERE to buy photos of the crusie.  I’ve posted a slideshow on my photography site and on youtube.

HDR Processing shots

Here are a few Screen shots of an HDR image being created in Photomatix pro 4.2 (32-bit). This is a fine program for this type of photography. I have used others and this is my favorite.

Back when I first started doing HDR photography I went out of control with my processing. Like most people new to it I pushed the limits. I really liked was I was doing yet I didn’t think it looked right. I seemed to “go with the flow”. After all, most everyone else had pics like that. I thought that was how it should look. I don’t like t see my old images but that’s a lesson I guess. Seeing how far you’ve come over the years.
I’ll show a screen shot of this old pickup in Photomatix before the processing and one when the processing is complete in Photomatix Pro 4.2. A third image is my final version after some tinkering in PS CS6.

Mustangs New and Old on the Quarter mile

Two Mustangs meet at Quaker City Motorsports, Salem Ohio. One is new and computerized, the other vintage. The other, pure raw horsepower.
This was the scene of a girls senior photo shoot. The track closed to the public. We had the track alone for a coupe hours. No light tree but we did just fine with out it.

One fine Ol Gasser

I took some pictures at the New Brighton, Pa. Car Cruise on Sept. 15th 2012 . I would like to create a slide show if I can find the time.
This HDR effect is a little stronger than I normally do but it seems to be what a lot of people like. Just a simple three bracket shot.
Visit thatstickerguy.com where I will soon be adding more prints for sale at Tony Bazidlo Photography.
