The Looking at Cars series: looking back through the nine years of the FATman Photos archives (and some new images too), I’m posting pictures of cars in various contexts and styles.  These Looking at Cars posts are here: 1 (with context); 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 .  Each post will open in a separate window.

      • I see you began with the Modern 6 profile – I like the way you keep your options open, with no silly snobbishness about filters, etc. You have taught me to (try) to do the same. It’s amazing how many choices there are, why not make use of them? And go from there.

        • I find some of Lightroom’s Modern profiles are really quite good, worth looking at.

          And yes, we belong to a really quite strange species, with many, many quirks, taboos and stigmas – and as you know I have a psychologist friend who is truly fascinated by these quirks. She is a people watcher and, after all, I’m a watcher too ie a birdwatcher, And we have just sat quietly together and watched people, and been fascinated. I am intrigued by her insights.

          I imagine there are some photographers who, after each exposure, swear by the technique of turning around and striking their right knee but, THE BOTTOM LINE IS >>> if an image looks good then it is good, irrespective of the method by which it has been produced. Of course, many images are over-processed and a part of our skill is to detect this. In many instances, less is more. 🙂

This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
