Music & Motors

Once a year musicians and motorists join forces in Ware’s Tudor Square for an afternoon of acoustic music and classic cars.

The event offers plenty of photo opportunities, with both performers and cars making excellent subjects. Sadly, on this occasion the performance area did not offer good sightlines with engineers and officials hanging around in the background.  The cars however were a lot more accommodating.

When photographing cars I like to concentrate on design and detail. Features such as badges and  instrumentation make for good close-ups.

Shapes and lines also make for good studies, particularly front and rear ends, as well as lighting equipment.

The Cadillac pictured below has some particularly dramatic features.

Other focal points can include engines – especially if they’ve been kept looking their best, interiors and any period artefacts. Many proud owners will also dress up for the occasion.

And if it happens to rain you can always take advantage of the classic raindrops on paintwork theme!
